This Massive Sculpture Is Made From Defunct Escalator Stairs

By Aimee Lutkin

In Sydney, Australia, a historical protected train station has found a gorgeous way to repurpose their old wooden escalator. Difficult to maintain, wooden stairs on an escalator have long gone out of fashion, but artist Chris Fox has made them into something that will preserved forever.

Treehugger reports that the piece will now hang indefinitely above commuter's heads in Wynyard Station. Called "Interloop," the piece is made from 244 wooden treads and weighs a total of five tons. It took an entire team to install.
