Client: VicRoads and Stonnington Council
Location: Gardiner Station, Glen Iris, Victoria
Features: Interactive LED lights, original signal box components
Materials:Stainless steel, bronze, copper, electro-mechanical components
Completed: 2016

Recent cataloguing of the switch house and signal box in preparation for upcoming works¬†uncovered some items of significant interest in the signal box‚Äôs underfloor area ‚Äď a curious¬†apparatus with its own signal frame and levers and an accompanying manual that describes¬†the ‚ÄúApparatus for Transtemporal Relocations of Impending Space‚ÄĚ as an inter-dimensional¬†switching apparatus allowing the user to shift between dimensions via a range of transport¬†types including zeppelin, submarine, train, tram and automobile. The machine works by¬†folding time and space, transporting the user to one of several ‚Äėtuned‚Äô convergence points. It¬†appears that the apparatus was never put to official use as there was no way for travellers to¬†return once they ported into another dimension.
