TREE RUGS!





Thank you so much to the superstars that is iAM Projetcs. They curated a whole bunch of rad installations for the new Gasworks redevelopment that I was lucky enough to be involved in. The Gasworks site is pretty iconic here in Brisbane, it's an old gasometer that has become the centrepiece for a new development of apartments, restaurants and retail spaces. 

Transforming what are typically worksite construction materials, I created a site-specific, outdoor installation for the Generate exhibition. Employing craft techniques to fabricate colourful adornments for the trees in the park area at Gasworks, the contrast between the natural world and the built environment became exaggerated. Through the use of vivid colours and angular shapes that mimic the repetition of patterns found in the original and iconic Gasometer Frame.
