Future Nature Coming Soon

In partnership with the Australian Museum, our upcoming creative program Future Nature is set to explore possible futures posed by artists, designers and architects inspired by biology and the natural world.

Set to launch in July before touring nationally in 2016, Future Nature will map the growing intersections of art, science, and design – exploring the emergence of unreal designs blurring the boundaries between scientific discovery and artistic practice.

Design Emergency at Tamworth Regional Gallery

The Object team travelled to Tamworth Regional Art Gallery last Friday for a great Design Emergency session with the kids from Tamworth Public School.

The students visited the Resolved: Journeys in Australian Design exhibition and then got stuck into a hands-on workshop and tackled the challenge question of “How do we protect ourselves and feel safe?” The kids came up with some amazing solutions drawn from their daily lives, creating models and collages to reflect their ideas.

See what the kids came up with after the jump…

Art + Tech and everything else

Last night we joined the crowd at General Assembly’s pop-up event space for Art + Tech: How Tech is Disrupting the Art World.

The speakers on the night did a fantastic job discussing a huge topic, and questions from the audience after the presentations led to some great observations and insights.

Thanks again to Ivan Vysotskiy, Lukasz Karluk, Claire Evans, and last night’s moderator Gabby Shaw.

Seeking Creative Producer to lead ‘Future Nature’

Object is on the hunt for a creative producer to lead our upcoming program Future Nature; Bio-Inspiration, a creative program held in our new William Street Storefront, from June 2015, in partnership with the Australian Museum. Showcasing the work of artists, artisans, designers and architects, Future Nature will uncover possible futures using solutions inspired by nature.

The producer we’re searching for will need to hatch the program details whilst co-ordinating active events and installations; they’ll be able to inspire audiences to engage with designers, and inspire designers to delve deep and deliver extraordinary outcomes.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know, read on for more details and how to apply.

Object: Australian Design Centre has appointed Those Architects as the creative force to lead the design of their new William Street Storefront. Those Architects were in a hot contest with other local emerging talents in a closed competition run by Object over the past month.
