URBAN SPRAWL

Urban Sprawl is a site specific installation, presented at the home of the curator Leon Hawker, in Melbourne for the first St One 20 public art event. This work was made out of six tents and appeared to look like warts or polyps growing out of the house. Lit at night it gave the work a strange alien quality. It is a comment on how difficult it can be to find a suitable rental property in the city and how many shared houses force people to live in unusual situations. Completing the work was an advertisement on the abode, detailing its proposed price and associated benefits, i.e; fantastic views, indoor amenities and outdoor living.
