It’s Not the End of the WorldGlass, paint pens, projection
‘It’s Not the End of the World’ was a commisioned public artwork for RMIT University, with the brief to ‘activate the campus’, and in particular New Academic Street.
A diptych of two illustrative works on windows espouses the ironic phrases ‘It’s Not the End of the World’ and ‘Everything will be Okay’ above illustrations of apocalyptic scenes layered over the view of the CBD.
The work sought to reframe a viewers perspective of the surrounding CBD buildings, visible from two matching architectual frames within RMIT’s New Academic Street, playing on the idea of overwhelming and ungulfing stress, and taking a step back to gain perspective.
The work stems my own practice in tattooing, exploring the act of layering and editing potentially transformative spaces to allow for sites of reinterpretation.
