White Night shines a light on the Metro Tunnel

Thousands of visitors to White Night donned construction gear and lined up to enter Metro Tunnel’s ‘Under Construction’ 3d excavation site.  

The artwork gave thousands of attendees of the iconic White Night event a playful window into the construction of the Metro Tunnel in Melbourne’s CBD.

The Metro Tunnel – Under Construction 3D illusion was commissioned by Melbourne Metro Rail Authority exclusively for White Night Melbourne 2017 and created by Zest Events International and Australia’s most highly awarded pavement artist, Jenny McCracken.

The Metro Tunnel is a 9 kilometre rail tunnel that will be built under the heart of Melbourne’s CBD and the Yarra River. The Tunnel will transform Melbourne’s rail network and is Victoria’s largest ever investment in public transport.

The 3d artwork will be transported down the line to provide opportunity for the public to find out more about the project from the Rail Authority construction team.

The artwork has since been transported down the line and will be on exhibition during the tunnel construction phase. View timelapse footage of Jenny McCracken creating the anamorphic artwork here.
