Our Ekka

Bowen Bridge Rd & Horace St (at Boral Concrete), Windsor QLD
This traffic signal box is quite close to the Brisbane Showgrounds, and I remembered my parents driving in this area when I was very young, taking me to the Ekka. This was such an exciting event every year in my childhood, I wanted to pay homage to my favourite and most memorable parts of The Ekka from my own experience. I want people travelling past this box to feel excited for the show the same way I feel when I am in the area, no matter the time of the year.
