Old Spaces

Old Spaces is a personal GIF project that documents spaces in mostly Sydney, Australia during the 1950’s - 2000’s. The aim of the project is to unearth local history and re-animate the forgotten stories attached to these urban sites as moving images.

The project is inspired by the recent development boom in Sydney with replacement of historical buildings for high-rise apartments. As such, I personally felt the need to preserve an essence of it’s history through my work.
Some animated stories include the iconic neon advertising signs on William Street in the 1960’s and the construction of Kings Cross tunnel, the first major tunnel in Sydney.
