“Thought Train” expands our conversation with architectural facades.
“Thought Train is an animated series of messages. Silent whispers passing through time. The pulsing messages move from clearly representational to abstract coded patterns. Metaphorical representations of the way we articulate unconnected thoughts in relationship to travel or moving.” Robyn Backen
The project was Cultural Capital for Transport NSW’s Wynscreen public art project.
Wynscreen was developed and produced by Cultural Capital.
Over time a custom set of After Effects scripts have been developed to control animation in a way so that precise and fine movements can be achieved. We enjoyed working with Alessio Cavallaro’s gentle guidance and curatorial support. Hai Trahn provided immense technical support in developing content for the screen.
The animation was generated with a tempo and form to respond to the unique curved screen.

Alessio Cavallaro dedicated time to polish our proposal. He helped us refine the sparse language of pure text and geometric transformations. Project partners – Cultrural Capitol were outstanding in their support of this unique project. Ian Hobbs
