Cabin Fever #1-10, 2010, paper, pen, string, PVA hot glue gun, beads

I am currently creating form through line work, colour blocking and the manipulation of commonly found materials. These small wearable pieces are the outcome of restless hands working their way through a long summer of drawing, painting and embroidery as a starting point to then layer stretch, fold and form. This work satisfies my need to build and desire to adorn within the confines of my home, and the limits of my empty pocket.

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.
