In November 2014 I started a residency on Thornton estate which lasted 9 months, Our Space was an element of the Goodwin Trusts ‘Estate of the Nation’ project. Working with Community groups, Adelaide Primary School and the Residents of the estate, I was commissioned to introduce playful interventions within the public realm. Sticking strictly to my brief I engaged with all who took the opportunity, over 700 residents of the estate took part in the ‘Our Space’ helping create some wonderful artwork and installations, we also had a lot of fun on the way!
Through playful transformation and manipulation of simple materials I like to explore the range of possibilities that a small selection of materials hold. I aim at a positive outcome for all the participants.
