5 Installations / 5 laneways
Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Artworks that communicate our vision for a sustainable city.

Artists

Living Lanes have curated 5 creative projects that engage and inspire locals and visitors. We encouraged artists to consider 3d relief, kinetic, interactive, tactile and sensory experiences. Artworks will be suitable for all weather conditions and have a lifespan of more than 2 years. We wanted artists to think about sustainability and end of life within the creation of their artworks.

Artists were encouraged to consider 3D relief, kinetic, interactive, tactile and sensory experiences.  Up to $20,000 will be provided to each artist for the total cost of production and installation. 

Our 5 selected artists are displayed below
