Presentation – Communicating ‘Making Place’

April 20, 2009

One of the most important aspects of this project is its final presentation, and everything I’m doing now is geared towards 1 June 2009 when my work is installed at Artisan’s 24/7 Project Space.

This has had me thinking around the clock for the best way to present the project’s concept of Making Place in what will essentially be a ‘visual summary’. So much has transpired through the process of creating this range, that it’s difficult to edit 12 months research and development, into one window display. It’s like taking a full transcript of a play and distilling it into a 30 second elevator pitch!

Aside from this, being literal in terms of presenting this work is not what I’m after. I want to communicate the intentions of Making Place, not only through the designs I’ve developed (the intersections and connections implicit in the pattern); but also the conceptual underpinnings of these wallpapers and textiles within an architectural context. This has led me to begin researching locations in which to position the work, spaces which create a dialogue with the pattern and reference notions of the ‘contemporary nomad’.

The location that Troy Hansen, my photographer has found, is both inspired by and conjures up the following words:

  • Juxtapose
  • Position
  • Relate
  • Interact
  • Contextualize
  • Transcribe
  • Link
  • Connect
  • Question
  • Intervene
  • Temporal

Bringing all these elements together is the integrity of the original idea – to connect people and the spaces we live in and move through by Making Place.
