mada-interior wearables

June 20, 2014



Recently I was invited by Matthew Bird and Jane Caught to document the first year Interior-Architecture student’s, wearable installations. I am always inspired by the diversity and the creations these students produce in the first semester, first year. This year took on a different concept, being wearable installations rather than installations within a space.

A brief description of the studio by tutor Matthew Bird:

“Monash University First Year Interior Architecture students have recently assembled a series of interactive, nomadic and ‘inhabitable’ wearable installations, crafting ‘stagy’ artefacts for a contemporary tribe of five people. The installation outcomes visualise contemporary spatial language, considering body movement, iconography, custom, ritual and are crafted from scavenged and or low-cost materials. Tutors: Matthew Bird (MADA & Studiobird) and Jane Caught (Sibling)”
