Dinky Doors


In 2019, miniature doors started appearing in Cambridge. A new one would appear every few weeks. I am not sure whether to categorise them as public art or not. They are certainly an art project (see website), but they are not official (although they seem to be tolerated by authority) and may be temporary.

Next to spiky letter box, in Riverside.
This used to be next to a college,
and the spikes on top were to stop students
climbing into college after hours
(when the gates were shut at night).

Jesus lock footbridge, Jesus Green

It is a transporter for "Ride and Park"
i.e. those who ride in a park
(rather than those who park in a carpark and ride in a bus).
It is disabled-friendly,
as the lift in front can be used for wheel chairs
(if small enough).
