DISRUPT - A Storytelling project to map the stories of our city - 2019
This is a map populated with story litter - those lost and discarded notes, lists and thoughts which float and scatter around the city like autumn leaves. These bits of story litter were collected by STREAT over many years of walking the streets. The map was installed on a 14 metre hoarding as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, and was collectively added to by participants who collaborated in RMIT led writing workshops. It became a growing and evolving work of art
In collaboration with SREAT, non/fiction Lab RMIT
Made possible by City of Melbourne, Melbourne Knowledge Week, Metro Tunnels and The Place Agency

STREAT - MELBOURNE - WRAPPING PAPER - Christmas 2016
This is a map of hopes and heartbreaks, memories and dreams, inspiration and insights, songs and stories all told by homeless and disadvantaged youth - those who know the streets best. After making this map I looked at our shared city in a completely different light.

WINE REPUBLIC - MAP OF FITZROY - 2013
A map and an external drawing of the Fitzroy neighbourhood. I rode my bike around Fitzroy for days recording small details for the map which would really make it feel connected and local. In fact many customers can find their actual house in this drawing. The external drawing was inspired by the fabric and lifestyle of Fitzroy.
