Traffic Light Control

Traffic Light Control

Artist in residence Helen Peyton’s favourite thing in the museum was this traffic control, initially because of the abstract form and an uncanny expression that immediately attracted her. That and the fact that when you pressed the red button, the traffic lights outside the station went to red to allow the quick departure of the fire engines onto to the York Road. Helen hopes that someone makes an app that you could install onto car… How good would that be?
Helen made a reduction linocut of the machine and here are the different stages to show the process.
