Lightbulb brooch, 2010, knitted acrylic

I'm a bit obsessed with lighting. As a photographer I have to consider it at all times and as a knitter I love to knit lightbulbs, lightbulb cosies, strings of lights, lightbulb necklaces… and now little lightbulb brooches.

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.
