"Combining ideation, drawing, painting, collage and installation, COLLAPSE is a project centred around attempting to realise a tent as an alternative art space. Inspired by my travels to Christchurch and the effort made by that city to use art as a formidable rebuilding tool in the wake of the Christchurch earthquakes, this body of work seeks to speculate on the potential of collapsible and mobile architectures. Produced as a book and an accompanying camp chair, this project was first shown at Paper Mountain Gallery as part of the exhibition Stay/Keep curated by Melissa McGrath." - Emma Buswell August, 2015
