26 Original Fakes 2017 First Forms We worked with our friends and their families to develop a better understanding of the replica industry in Australia. The young people (most of whom we have known since they were born) are a forthright group (aged 3 – 13) and (like most younger folk) experience the world in a morally profound way. We asked them for their thoughts on the definition of originality, and to sketch the Jasper Morrison Hal Chair. The clear eyes of childhood revealed some gorgeous studies of the chair. We've pulled together these sketches and words in a poster for the exhibition (because posting a chair to Alice is, well, cost prohibitive and harder to stick to a wall). #melbournedesignweek thanks to @dale.hardiman and @skeehanstudio for having us! And to Xavier at Dawn Press for the 👌 #risographprint http://friendsand.associates/

Object Therapy 2016 Three Daughters Alison’s father had three daughters, so did his bag. This gladstone bag has been deconstructed and reconfigured into three seperate objects. Like their human counterparts they are a mixture of genetic heritage; some familiar, some new. Three Daughters pays homage to the marks of history and evidence of adventure and tells a story of family through materials and form. For Object Therapy / Hotel Hotel. "This bag has great sentimental value. When I think of my Dad as a young man (he is now 89) I think how smart he looked with his travel satchel. We found it recently in the corner of his garage." http://www.hotel-hotel.com.au/objecttherapy/alisons-bag/
