Sign In 2000 was a community project undertaken in WA in 1999 to produce an inlaid path of ceramic tiles surrounding the Bell Tower.
School students from all around WA were invited to take part in Sign In 2000, offering them the opportunity to sign their names into history.
In 1999, students from Al-Hidayah Islamic School signed thier name on a piece of paper which would be transfered onto ceramic tiles that would then be paved into a pathway which sat as a monument outside the Perth Bell tower, which was constructed at the same time.
Over 200,000 WA students' signatures were etched into the tiled pathway.
The tiles were removed in 2014 and the signatures will live on in a new public art piece at Elizabeth Quay.
The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority has created a photographic record of each tile to obtain the signature in electronic format for future interpretation into the public realm at Elizabeth Quay.
