Local Design Milan / by Kate Banazi

As part of Milan Design Week, showing at the beautiful Teatro Arsenal curated by Emma Elizabeth and Tom Fereday of Local Design, Sydney, I participated in the group showing of twelve Australian designer/artists. My interlocking perspex piece sat alongside the beautiful works of the two curators as well as Shilo Engelbrecht, Frag Woodall, Alex Fitzpatrick, DAAST, Coco Reynolds, Toby Jones, Rachel Vosila, Andrew Thompson and Ton Skeehan.

The piece I created is based upon a childhood game I had, scaled up to an adult size and titled 'The Games We Play'. It can be assembled and reassembled in different configurations and references relationships and the shadows that are cast by the silkscreen print which change throughout the day and light source direction.
