Time, set in the long-abandoned third-floor wing of Flinders Street Station, is a nostalgic love letter to mid-century Melbourne and a homage to one of the city’s great landmarks.
This truly remarkable site-specific experience is Rone’s most ambitious project, having been created and refined over three years.
It is profoundly atmospheric, capturing both the grand scale and character of the location as well as the minute detail of a time of Melbourne’s history long gone to progress.
Time is a fictitious history that takes spectators to post-WWII Melbourne. It is inspired by a period when European migrants propelled the city’s thriving manufacturing industries.
Time captures the essence of the city’s dynamic past while presenting glimpses of the station’s role as a once-glorious nexus of industry, study, and social life.
The artist and his crew have produced an immersive, multisensory installation that viewers will remember for a long time.
The artist Tyrone Wright, better known by his street art pseudonym Rone, lived and worked in Melbourne until 2020 when he helped create the city’s first “arcade,” an initiative aimed at luring residents back into the city after a Covid lockdown.
The dusty typewriters, the cobweb-covered dial phones, the melancholy music, and the reflective paintings on the walls all contribute to the idea that this room has been mysteriously hidden for decades.
It’s an artful recreation that makes for a realistic and unforgettable experience. The grand railway building dates back to 1910, and within it are eleven individually themed rooms with authentic period furnishings and mood lighting. The artwork depicts scenes from mid-century public libraries, machine rooms, and typing pools.
Each room featuring Rone’s spooky characteristic murals comes together to create a unique experience that remains in mind long after returning to the bustle of the modern city.
