Blake Griffiths for Designwork 03 in The Age
In an article that explores the ways in which designers are tackling climate change, Ray Edgar writes, 'understanding where materials come from and where they finish up is imperative'.
Edgar highlights works by Blake Griffiths. For Designwork 03: The Supply Chain, Griffiths critiques the darker sources of materials of design. In his wreath made of tanned bony bream from the third Menindee fish kill, Griffiths memorialises the recent Darling River eco-disaster. Keulemans describes the wreath as 'darkly and critically reflective of capitalist capacities to exploit disaster'.
Works by Griffiths are now showing at the gallery in Designwork 03. To read the article, please click here.
