Completed for the Design the Other Way Round research unit with Malte Wagenfeld at RMIT Industrial Design, this is a phenomenological design exploration into bike path lighting in Brunswick, Victoria.
A playful and lively piece of furniture for your interior living space or office. An exploration of plywoods, laminates, glues, swearing, clamps, straps, steam-bending and jig making.

Isolation is the theme of this set, they say. Reminded me of a road trip I took around Australia in 2004. Everyone I met, seen briefly at certain stops along the way, now lives in their own isolated moment, captured only through my camera and my memory. The silence around me on that journey was big enough to cause ongoing agoraphobia. Now I take photos through my keyhole, creeping out at night and other times when the clouds are low enough to block out the sky.
