Ben Landau

Ben Landau is a young designer working in experimental, exhibition, event and theatre design. He creates unique experiences for users and audiences – from delightful puppet encounters to informative exhibitions and engaging theatre pieces.

Ben works from the perspective of the user, to understand how to best inform, connect with or entertain them. He hopes to travel and work with creative companies of various disciplines, in Australia and abroad.

my scrap, 2010, various materials

I’m in the process of moving, de-cluttering my life, and ultimately getting rid of the op shop junk, the side of the road ‘finds’ the bits and pieces I couldn’t bear to part with. I’ve distilled this collection of beautiful objects down to a few, from which I’ve taken a small token, almost a glimpse of the whole object, and framed it as an object itself.

I hope to lessen the emotional impact of my culling, and offer a $2 physical peep show into my discarded detritus.

Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
