Happy City

Happy City

By Kaung Su

Two sculptures with a human shape were placed on the 235 he attention Dagon to Sule Pagoda Station bus line. The aim of these artworks was to get the attention of everyday bus passengers and make impressions about contemporary art in the city.

Sketches were made for the welding technician, to help construct the figures of the standing and sitting bus passengers.  There were many interesting reactions from the bus users – some were afraid, some were playful – the bus driver also really enjoyed the project and how people interacted with it.

The bus also had mechanicals problems and couldn’t go on its the route for a day - the driver felt very sand that the sculpture couldn’t go around as promises, so he decided to extend the stay of the sculptures in the bus for another week, for free.
