hotel on Eastlink, Melbourne

hotel

The fourth major work is Hotel, a 20m-high scale model of a high-rise hotel that will give motorists the impression they are driving past a movie set.

For its creator, Canadian-born Callum Morton, the idea of the folly” hotel was in part inspired by the big” icons spotted from the back seat of the car on the road trips of his youth.

It’s the antithesis of the giant pineapple or the lemonade bottle, which was a landmark for me as a child whenever we travelled down the coast, because it is in fact a reduced version of a building, not an inflated one,” Morton says.

Sted 10m off the bitumen between Greens and Bangholmeroads in Dandenong South, Hotel will feature lights that fade in and out across individual windows (the lights are powered by solar panels), giving the impression the structure is occupied.

Text ripped from http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,,23841904-5012907,00.html. Such a mysterious work – a little bit David Lynch, a little bit toy train set—stuck on the edge of the Eastlink tollway in Melbourne.
