Project Coordinator and Designer Melbourne International Arts Festival I worked with the Artistic Director, Kristy Edmunds to curate the exhibition ‘Inside the Maker’s Mind’ at the Victorian Arts Centre. I created lightboxes using tracing paper over the concrete poles on which images were projected and artists’ notes were printed. I designed a large crate/table that housed inspirations from the Festival makers. The crate echoed the way equipment for Festival shows are shipped to Australia.
I also designed this exhibition space and the interior of The Clubhouse, the purpose built children’s venue designed by Wood Marsh Architecture. I designed seats from clear vinyl filled with toys and ‘house’ lights from felt that matched the house image on the festival publicity material.
