A new public art installation called Urban Surfaces has been revealed in Melbourne, showcasing publicly contributed photographs which capture the essence of the city.

The public art concept has come about as part of a collaborative project involving students from RMIT’s School of Architecture and Design and Lendlease’s Melbourne Quarter development.

Students have designed the Urban Surfaces interactive artwork on the project’s construction hoarding at the corner of Flinders and Spencer Streets.

The project has given students the opportunity to document Melbourne’s rich diversity through photographs by experimenting with creative treatments as part of the major mixed-use Melbourne Quarter precinct development.

The artwork has also been deemed as a creative solution to help beautify the city’s many construction sites, with this heavily-trafficked area on the corner of Spencer and Flinders Streets a prime example

Melbourne Quarter’s project director, Brian Herlihy, said the project aims to develop stronger ties between the community and up-and-coming designers.

“This installation not only tests how public artwork interacts with the wider community, but engages students in a real-life installation of urban street artwork,” he says.
