HI-LIGHTS is a large public art work commissioned by the city of Gold Coast in Australia as its new gateway. It is centered on the radically adaptive reuse of a seemingly familiar infrastructure. Rethinking the highway light poles as dots that form letters and words, and altering their equally-spaced rhythm into a sudden, dense concentration, HI-LIGHTS puts the Gold Coast’s name in lights through two unique works at the city’s busiest entry points. Featuring nearly 100 highway light poles, closely spaced at different heights, the lights spell out the city’s name in the northern installation along 100 meters of the Pacific Highway, and the city initials at the southern site near the airport.
