She will be creating a sound piece to co-incide with the visual work.

Object believes in the power of design to effect positive change. We recognise there is an opportunity to teach children creativity and design thinking skills so they will be able to deal with the problems of the future.
Our outreach education program, Design Emergency, can empower children to change their world for the better. But we need your help to do it!
Object has spent the past 12 months piloting variations of Design Emergency across schools in New South Wales. The response to the pilots from participating schools and teachers validated a strong need for a program like Design Emergency.
