Reduce Speed

2011

Our roads are constantly being repaired, extended and altered. This project focused on nighttime road works, exploring the ever-changing landscape of the city. The M2 in Sydney’s north is the subject of this dramatic urban change. The photos show the workers repairing the M2 under floodlights while visually isolated by the traffic driving by.  Nighttime road works are mysterious man made landscapes and a further example of non-places, as we tend not to think about these places while they are under repair. They were originally displayed on light boxes, which emphasises the lighting.
