Art and About - Happy Talk

The garment is being knitted from strips of plastic bag.

WHAT IF we became part of a conversation with our Pacific neighbours, building a house together to explore the inventive and resourceful ways Pacific Island communities approach design?

Happy Talk, is an initiative started by Liane Rossler and Heidi Dokulil to open up such a conversation, launches at Art & About with the Happy Talk House project. A pavillion built from timber pallets, using traditional skills, and inspired by the resourcefulness of Gilligan’s Island, this house will become home to public art projects, talks and workshops throughout Art & About, in Sandringham Gardens, Hyde Park.

Interesting concept.

I saw those crates along there and wondered what they would house. The poor old park is a mess of stuff at the moment.
