Tin & Ed worked with RMIT Design Hub to produce an exhibition environment for Perceptive Power that reflects upon the themes of the show. They have used the Design Hub store of existing exhibition materials – an archive of Design Hub's past programs – that challenges Design Hub, and our visitors, to be aware of how we critically use resources within the context of temporal, and regularly wasteful exhibition design.
As a result, a palette of materials comprising acrylic sheet, USB board, plywood, concrete, plastic and others has been used to form the surfaces of new exhibition labels. Tin & Ed's 'bumper sticker' style treatment of the exhibition title plays into the environmental movement's use of slogans and snappy catch phrases as a way to disseminate provocative messages and incite a critical mass of people behind the push for change.
