Title: Architectures of Light
A visual artist who makes street art, public art and site-specific installations—Architectures of Light is a collage of Amanda’s projected works that reference the city grid and Le Coubusier’s ideal city situated on Fitzroy’s Atherton Gardens Estate.

Her tram is an extension of the artworks that she projected on the site with Projectionteknik and captured with James Morgan in the 2012 Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Amanda’s tram will bring the best of past and present Melbourne to life with her art works that have often represented the heritage of the sites and skinned city buildings.

Title: Look both ways
"Look both ways" reflects on how cities, especially a great city like Melbourne, are in a perpetual state of change and renewal. At any one time there is constant demolition, clearing, redevelopment and construction going on in our urban environment. The spectacular void of the construction site, appearing in place of something that once was, is always a mesmerizing sight, even if the change is not welcome. But these voids are fleeting in comparison to the long life of a city, history overlooks them and we eventually forget about them. Perhaps think of this tram you are riding as a moving catalyst for change, plowing through the city and suburbs leaving a trail of transformation in its wake.

23-Sep-2015:  A2.278 in spectacular "Kapow" livery heads toward the terminus in Docklands Drive.

The Victorian Government and the Transport Accident Commission combined to produce a striking image in an effort to reduce pedestrian road trauma in Melbourne's CBD.  For 12 weeks from June 2015, an eye catching tram adorned with pop art imagery will remind pedestrians in the city to keep their "heads up" and their "phones down".  The iconic "KAPOW!" pop art image will serve as a further reminder of the consequences of getting distracted when walking around the busy streets of Melbourne.
