Honeymoon at The Skyway Hotel

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This mechanical assemblage looks at the unreliability of memory in an imaginary hotel with an impossible view to The Scenic Skyway and the 3 Sisters in Katoomba in The Blue Mountains. The ‘honeymooners’ have left their luggage in their hotel room and gone, perhaps, to drink champagne in the hotel bar.

On winding the key on the side of the work, the Skyway car can be seen moving across the valley through the hotel window while ‘The Shadow of Your Smile’ plays on a hidden music box.
