The installation serves as both spatial partition and a delicate frame for the images.

The design is self-supporting, transportable and easy to assemble.


This exhibition design was commissioned for a photography show titled ‘Desivolution’ – part of  Multicultural Arts Victoria‘s Mapping Melbourne 2016 Festival. The design sought to question the traditional way that photography is displayed – encased behind glass and strictly along walls. The idea was to release the image from the traditional confines and enable visitors to interact and walk around the images at the heart of the gallery space. The design is self-supporting and did not require glue or nails to be assembled.  Comprised of unprocessed plywood that is cut via a CNC router machine, the design takes its inspiration from the traditional Indian Jali screen that serve as ornamental spatial dividers. We are currently looking to adapt and evolve the design for further uses such as retail pop-ups and larger exhibition structures.
