ReKabled Installation by Josh Chaffey

An installation by Josh Chaffey, supported by the Tamworth Regional Council celebrating 125 years of public electricity in the Southern Hemisphere.

Artist Josh Chaffey was commissioned to create a site specific artwork which was installed on the museum’s facade during the event. Using LED lights, Chaffey created a map of Tamworth’s original 21km of street lighting, seen as a grid pattern on the building. With multiple circuits switched by computer controlled software a multiplicity of visual patterns was produced.

ReKabled was part of the IMAGinE Award Winning project QUASQUICENTENNIAL OF LIGHT: 1888 – 2013

See Tamworth Powerstation Museum Online Catalogue for Collection No. 302 to see a map of the original Tamworth street lights and to find out more about this history.
