Eye to Eye Exhibition
Eye to Eye came about through the idea of different perceptions, how everyone interprets ideas, and works differently or sometimes the same. Extremely common to the contemporary art phenomenon is the white wall space, contemporary art needs to be challenged outside of this bubble, this is why Sharkweek Store was the chosen space to exhibit the works. A space that has concrete floors, industrial ceilings and a make shift wall in the middle which splits the room in two, it transmitted a rawness about the place. I believe the most challenging and engaging art is that which questions the system it is working within, and highlights and recognises this both in its construction and execution.

The Archive Book
My collection of photographs and film stills have been taken by ordinary people, portraits, holiday snap shots and dreamy landscapes have been compiled into my own personal archive. They are all ‘lost’ objects, with the only connection to their history, if there is any, is a little scribble of a name or a location on the back. This book silently eulogizes film photography's magic, there is a softness and dream like quality around analogue that draws people to it. It celebrates the found and stimulates the notion of nostalgia using the engager’s new-found connectivity with the book.
Little Farmers Market
'The Little Farmers Market' is a new and fresh branding for a community event. Sustainability was the one key thing to be involved in the project, to the left there is a reusable shopping bag to encourage those who come to the markets to not use plastic bags for their weekly fruit and veggie shop. The logo was influenced by fruit and veggie tags and the vibrant green to catch your eye. As a bonus, the more people who use this product act as walking advertisement for the local farmers market.
More with less maximises function, aesthetic value and human experience while using minimum means, hence, more with less. This project was inspired by the current state of the fashion industry and consumer behaviour and the quick turn over from the production of clothing to consumer’s waste. Is the clothing being produced not good enough or are consumers too easily bored? Multifunctional clothing is the answer to this.
