Following the 2013 Brunswick Betterblock, Moreland City Council decided it was time for a longer popup park trial that would close Wilsons Ave for two months. Phil Harkin and myself from the Urban Bush Carpenters, were enlisted to build some additional furniture. The task was to create an installation that would work with the amazing mural art of Rone from Everfresh; promote construction from salvaged materials; and provide seating in the only shaded area of the site.
- 3 x large (double sized) pallets, salvaged from the waste pile of a Brunswick building site
- Salvaged timber from broken pallets and crates
- Potting mix
Initial design concept modelled in Rhino. This is not something the Urban Bush Carpenters usually do, but in this situation, because it was to be a longterm installation, it was necessary to get design sign-off from the council.
Participatory Painting Session
Installation Moved to Oxygen Youth Centre
Finally, when the two months were up, we were asked to reinstall the seating at the new City of Moreland, Oxygen Youth Centre.
