The Passenger Sculpture
Public Art : The Passenger Sculpture also known as
Sculptor : © Cezary Stulgis
Date : 2003
Description : Galvanized steel sculpture of a man on
public transport. The expressionless commuter is holding onto a safety strap with one hand, whilst carrying a
suitcase in the other. The stainless steel background includes a real Brisbane City Council bus window. The
sculpture seems to be poking fun at all the people having to spend too much time commuting, when they could simply
buy an apartment at Willahra Towers and save themselves the stress (clever, you say?). I guess being located on the
most busiest street of Brisbane and facing the traffic, was no coincidence, subtly reminding, or should I say,
reinforcing, to those who see it everyday from their bus window, how unlucky they really are (too
right, clever). Art poking fun at the masses (priceless).
