Tonight in Sydney there will be an opening for The Human Environment, an exhibition held to raise funds for newly formed Climate Council.
After the Australian government recently cut funding to the former Climate Commission, local fashion brand Sark Studio was motivated to rally and lend support.
In conjunction with the creative minds from The Glue Society twenty renowned artists from different creative disciplines were asked to submit an image which contained a shirt by Sark Studio.
The photographs are available through online auction (ending on February 23) with 100% of funds being donated to the Climate Council. It’s a worthy cause!
My image ‘Axis Mundi’ was created with the help of talented photographer Bowen Arico.
Something a bit different this time around – my mates from The Cliff Dive asked me to make a school of glowing fish lanterns for above their dance floor. Tonight we are off to install them! Here is a studio shot >> more images soon.
I am honoured to announce that the collaboration between myself and Romance Was Born has been acquired by the Powerhouse Museum and now forms part of their permanent collection.
The huge pop-up set, as well as the wearable paper pieces I made for models and the collateral attached to the show are currently on show in the museum as part of the Clothes Encounters exhibition which will run till the end of January 2015.

My recent commission for Samsung has just been launched and is up in lights over Time Square, NYC. Amazing!

I met Leigh from Hello Bookcase during the Pecha Kucha night on Japan I spoke at recently.
She asked if she could come and visit my library – the resulting interview is HERE with some beautiful accompanying photography.
Elicia and my conversation was recorded by the ABC and screened on Big Ideas.
Tomorrow I’m excited to be talking at the Museum of Sydney about one of my passions – Japan!
The talk is part of an ongoing series that revolve around the current exhibition of the wildly successful blog 52 Suburbs by photographer Louise Hawson.
I’ll be in conversation with Elicia O’Reilly from the Japan Foundation. Our topic is Tokyo with a particular focus on how the culture has influenced and inspired aspects of my creative practice. I’ll also be bringing some pieces of work and found Japanese treasures to share with the audience afterwards.
The 40 minute talk kicks off at 2pm so if you’re down at the harbour near Circular Quay checking out the huge naval regatta I hope you can pop in. See you there!
