Callum Morton is known for his large scale architecturally inspired installations and sculptures.
Born in Montreal, but living and working in Melbourne, Australia, Morton’s most recent work is a piece of urban art that many locals are calling ‘graffiti’. Hotel by Morton, on the EastLink between Greens and Bangholme Rds, is a large-scale model of a high-rise hotel comprising of a steel structural frame with concrete and glass panels, standing 20 m high, 12 m long and 5 m wide. Some of its windows are lit at night with solar power, but it’s not real…
"Motorists will view it from the car as an actual hotel and perhaps over time as a strangely de-scaled prop that has escaped the theme park or film set," Morton said.
Obviously public art is often controversial, I think that in itself is a great thing- gets the people talking. Have a look at this link to see more works along the highways.
