Creative Canine Commute

Coonan St & Station Rd, Indooroopilly QLD
Step into the whimsical world of the “Creative Canine Commute,” a vibrant and imaginative painting that transports you to a realm where dogs don colourful attire and embark on a delightful train journey. Hovering above the train is a giant communal thought bubble, a window into the canine collective imagination. Within this whimsical cloud, dogs engage in a myriad of entertaining and creative activities that mirror human pastimes in a bustling dog park. The thought bubble encapsulates the spirit of uninhibited joy and showcases the dogs’ limitless imagination as they partake in activities that go beyond the bounds of traditional canine behaviour. It’s a celebration of the boundless joy, creativity, and camaraderie that dogs bring into our lives along with the realisation that time spent commuting is excellent time for thinking. In the words of Austin Kleon “Creative people need time to just sit and do nothing.” The box is situated near the train station and will encourage people to indulge in some creative thought whilst travelling on the train.
