Emerging artist Callum Croker has won the $5000 Melbourne Festival Art Trams People's Choice Award for his work Parrot Tulip Tram.
Describing his winning entry Callum says:
"The pattern on the outside of this tram was created through repetition of a drawing of a single parrot tulip flower. The image
was originally hand drawn using coloured pencils on A3 sized paper. It was then photographed and duplicated and mirrored using
Photoshop. I want to create an image which allows people to experience the artwork based on their own perception of the
patterns. I was inspired by the Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach's remarkable 1921 invention of the inkblot test.
Ambiguous mirrored blobs of ink are interpreted uniquely by individuals who might perceive faces and animals in the ink. Cloud
watching can offer a similar experience. What can you see in the patterns on this tram?"
All eight Art Trams will remain on the network into 2015. Use the myTRAM feature in tramTRACKER to see them in person.
