Sydney Writers Festival:
Metaphors of Space
The Wharf Theatre, Walsh Bay, N.S.W, 2009
We were invited by Mascara Poetry and MCHP Architects to collaborate with poet Mario Licon Cabrera for the Metaphors of Space event at the Sydney Writers Festival. We were asked to consider an architectural response to his poem Casa Efimera. Using Kirigami (paper folding and cutting) as the vehicle for this work, we took the forms of the wharf theatre and Seidler's Blues Point Tower opposite, to inform the cuts in the paper features, which becamea series of removable features the audience was invited to explore, remove and take home, to reveal photographic investigations of elements of our work.
