Installation with a difference

From a distance it looks like a pretty interesting installation located on a prominent corner of Hyde Park, Sydney; it’s large enough to be visible by car from some distance off. The lettering is reminiscent of the flowing copperplate script of the  ‘Eternity’ inscription  that was chalked on the side walks of Sydney by Arthur Stace between 1932 and 1966.

AZB Creative were engaged by Sydney City Council On closer inspection though, it’s a pretty grislley and confronting message that Sydney City Council has done through its’ Zerowaste program with one of its’s slogans being, ‘Love your city, bin your buts’.   The three-dimensional perspex lettering contains what must be thousands of cigarette butts. It is a great installation and innovative way of confronting people withe the stark reality of undisposed waste, of whatever kind.
