liminal Opens 18 march 2019

Melbourne Design Week 2019

Inspired by Lake Tyrrell, (salt lake) Liminal is an installation of product design, visuals and soundscapes. It’s the intersection of these different perspectives of which Liminal seeks to explore the idea of how transient moments in the design process can reshape our future. Lake Tyrrell impresses upon us the impermanence of form; our relationship with space & objects; and how fleeting moments redefine realities.

Liminal is a collaboration between product designer,
Eugenie Kawabata, photographer/director Adrian Lander & sound designer/composer Duane Morrison. This union is seamlessly expressed through a design experience that gives us a peep into a world that reshapes our design experience.

Part of Melbourne Design Week 2019, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the National Gallery of Victoria
