Thought Train

Wynscreen by Transport for NSW in conjunction with Cultural Capital.

Thought Train comprises eighteen text sequences that flow between black text on white background to white text on black. Each sequence transitions from text to an interstitial, small breaks or gaps in the continuous thought train. Existing as irregularly timed breaks in time, as liminal zones or mantra-like states.

‘Wynscreen’ is a 23-metre wide curved LED screen showing a constantly changing series of moving images created by Australian sound and installation artists using contemporary digital technology.

At any one time the work can simply be experienced as a series of fragments captured, or, as most of the passers-by will be regulars, a conclusion may be found or the work pieced together, unfolding over many visits. There is no beginning or end only the transitory. Wynscreen is situated within Wynard Walk at the Clarence Street Entrance to Wynard Station, Wynscreen is the first major immersive public art project commissioned by Transport for NSW in conjunction with Cultural Capital.
