Art Installation Makes City More “Walkable”

Street art installation inspired by pedestrians themselves.

The Sunniside area of Sunderland, North England has seen major regeneration and development in the past years. The latest project in the neighborhood was a commission to bring pedestrians into the recently re-furbished Sunniside Gardens. Artist Charlie Davidson created an installation of stools that were designed to resemble people walking, a sort of tongue-in-cheek, literal interpretation of the commission.

The stools have been created from a polymer based cement with coloured quartz and marble aggregate, and lit from below.
