Residents of two public housing towers in Waterloo, Sydney, lit up their windows in a variety of colours from September as part of an art installation about the effects of plans to demolish the estate. We Live Here 2017 was launched after it was announced the government planned to demolish the two towers, Matavai and Turanga. About half of the residents – those who opted to take part – were given different coloured LED lights to turn on at sunset, The Guardian reported. The organisers said their goal was to “celebrate the community of Waterloo before the redevelopment reimagines the area, imposing swathes of high-density private dwellings to the estate.” Credit: Instagram/Adam Sparke via Storyful
