It is not an alien invasion, not a frame from a sci-fi movie, but a living and breathing city, almost real and shockingly impressive. When I was standing there on the dark lane I heard the sounds of an invisible heart beating, breathing of an old building, saw the skin pulsing on a worn brick wall. It has really created an impression of an old organism being alive, calmly living there and serving humans for as long as it is required. What would it think about everything around it? Does it get irritated by the unpleasant smell or loud partygoers on Fridays?
I Dwell In The City And The City Dwells In Me is a public artwork by Kim Bridgland, Adrian Hill, Aline Joyce and Theresa Schubert. It is a part of a Laneways By George – Hidden Networks project. The exhibition consists of 8 creative works transforming hidden lanes and little streets in the Sydney centre. Installations are on display from 1 October 2009 until the 31 of January 2010.
