Looking Glass is an incredible piece of glass, the most iconic tourist attraction in the world.
The glass-encased sculptures are made of steel and can be seen everywhere from the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge to the iconic Mount Druitt.
But while it’s still a long way off being a full-fledged tourist attraction, it’s already made its mark on Sydney.
Now, as part of its new 10-year tourist attraction plan, Sydney Harbour Bridges has unveiled its newest glass-based sculptures, the first of which is looking glass.
The bridge’s new Looking Glass sculpture, by artist and filmmaker James Hutton, is the first in a series of four looking glass pieces on the bridge’s waterfront.
The new sculpture is the second looking glass piece to be added to the bridge, after the first piece was installed in October.
The original looking glass was installed by former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in 2008, in memory of his father, Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
It was later replaced by the glass sculpture of former Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
“It’s not really about me, it is about the people who were here when it was made,” said James, who has made several works for the Sydney Harbour bridge.
“The reason I am doing it now is because it’s an opportunity to see it and to see what’s there, and to learn about it, and not be ashamed to see this.”
To be able to see the whole bridge is a huge experience for me.
“The bridge will be open to the public from January 2019, but visitors can still purchase tickets from September 2019.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for children.
The Sydney Harbour Crossing will be opening to the general public on February 1.
