Today the Department of Extraordinary Upcycling is marveling at this awesomely surreal, gravity-defying installation created by Australian artist Chris Fox using two pairs of wooden escalators from Sydney’s Wynyard Railway Station, first installed back in 1931.

“The escalators have carried passengers for over 80 years and slowly became an iconic symbol of the city’s identity. Fox’s solution is Interloop, a twisting, accordion-like ribbon that is now suspended from the station ceiling, stitching together 244 wooden escalator treads in an otherworldly design.”

Head over to the Sydney Morning Herald for additional photos and to learn more about Fox’s Interloop and the history of Wynyard Station.
