Customs House Square, fountain

This fountain was a temporary art piece located in Customs House Square at Circular Quay last week. It was part of the promotional launch of the first all-electric car commercially available in Australia. The conceptual art display, "A World without Petrol", reused 38 old petrol browsers re-imagined as various art works, including this working fountain featuring a number of bowsers, at the centre of the square.

  4. lina@happy family, apparently these fountains were lit up at night and I can imagine that they may have added some colours on this white one.

  9. Another new word for me. Browser. Looks like what we would call a gas pump. Very interesting use of the old things.

  10. Rita, I didn't realise bowser was an Australian term. I just googled it and found that it is a uniquely Australian English word for petrol pump or gas pump. :)
