After a morning of being inspired by a selection of the shop windows that are apart of Look. Stop. Shop. A walking trail through Melbourne’s city center that allows you to experience a series of inspiring installations by design-minded businesses for the State of Design Festival. Michelle Mulvey and I headed over to North Melbourne to Kids in Berlin where we volunteered to add a splash of colour to the shop window. The brief, was something tactile and wintery. Over a coffee and a pot of green it was decided something with clouds and rain drops, but it still had to have a handmade appearance about it. On arrival at Kids in Berlin the concept was finalised, rain drops with knitted like patterns inside them and clouds that looked like balls of wool.
It was so lovely to be able to produce artwork which has a wider scope than a wall in a gallery.
The painted window will be up until around the end of August. At which time hopefully both Michelle and I will be back painting the window at Kids in Berlin, this time with a Spring like theme.
