The Raven

Design

The Raven is redesign of Edgar Allen Poe’s story The Raven. Through text and illustration, the reader follows the demise of the narrator throughout the course of the tale. Using mixed media such as water colour paint and hand-cut silhouettes, the manic and eerie nature of the story is unfolded to create a unique and haunting redesign.

Stitch In Time

Design

A Stitch In Time explores the connections between fairytales and quilting. “Fairytales were never meant for children,” Sheldon Cashdon writes, but in fact the fairytales that we know are only pale reflections of the folktales of Little Red Riding Hood and others stories such as Puss In Boots. These stories, often highly sexualised, were told in the fields and kitchens, around fires late at night and between women among the sewing tables.

The project, A Stitch In Time, gathered groups of people from different ages to draw images of fairytales from their memories. These images were curated and sewn together to form a quilt. This quilt was then exhibited in Melbourne, 2009, along with hand printed posters created from old books.

In each of the eight town square’s, an artist show cased their work in a digital format, merging culture and technology together. Each display was interactive, allowing tourists and locals to play.
