This installation features a 1950s style toy town modelled on Brisbane city. The town was installed below the bus platform at the Royal Brisbane Hospital bus station and features mechanical tin buses activated by pedestrian movement. Pedestrians can view the work either by looking through portholes in the pavement, or on an LCD screen showing real time bus cam footage.
