This is what Annie sees

Boundary Rd & Annie St, Coopers Plains QLD
The box is located on Annie St and is next to the stable swamp creek. So my vision is to brighten up the industrial estate by having a fictional character ‘Annie’, to show us what she sees at the creek. Annie sees life, colour, beauty, an ecosystem, sunshine and peace. In my work I have included six different species of flowers common to the creek and a water hen. I want viewers to feel bright and happy as the estate feels colourless and gloomy. I also hope that highlighting the creek and the life in the creek, might make people think twice about littering there.
