History in Punched Holes

The entrance to the underbelly of our Harbour Bridge at Westhaven is fenced off by aluminium panels showing reproductions of historic photographs from the time of its construction. They appear in a very subtley grey-in-grey toning, and on closer inspection reveal themselves as rasterizations, with holes of different sizes (according to tonal density) punched into the sheets (AM screening). Clever.

  1. This is really neat!
    I like that they went to so much trouble to be artistic.
