• Unmaking waste 2015- inspirational 31 May 2015 | View comments

  • I was fortunate enough to present my paper on "Making Custodians" through design as part of the fanastic Unmaking Waste conference organised by The University of South Australia. Truly inspiring speakers such as Prof. Stuart Walker, Design professor and philosopher Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos; gave a global perspective to the extensive problems of waste and, unfortunately, the design industries' contribution to this pervasive problem. However the proposed solutions and varied approaches of so many devoted individuals to this area is inspiring. I came away even more committed to working with 'waste' as useable materials and creating heirloom objects with meaning. (Endless Quilt was made entirely of offcuts intended for disposal.)  Click on the image for details, the presented papers will be available from August 2015.
