Project Brief

Timeline installation design for Heide Museum of Modern Art effectively conveying the historical evolution of both the museum and the surrounding park, showcasing how people have interacted with the broader site over time.

Project Rationale

Our lives today is inimitably more comfortable and easier when juxtaposed with the lives of our ancestors. The broadsheet ‘2 Getting Around’ is an account of the early settlers and their commute in and around Melbourne.

In our fast-paced lives, it is often that we overlook the struggles people faced in early years. Most of us living in a modern world would’t consider how would it be to hunt for our own food, not have cars (or even roads) to commute, grow our own crops, or not even have internet.

Therefore, to give an insight into the struggles and the rich history of Melbourne transport, I have designed an installation called “The Fabric of Time”. It bespeaks about the important landmarks and milestones in those early years meanwhile exhibiting that area in today’s Melbourne. It is also meant to revive the importance and roles those areas and routes played to facilitate the progress and infrastructure we

see today!

The Fabric of Time is a metaphor saying - time is like a woven cloth

Proposed Strategy

“Walking. I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” - Linda Hogan

Inspired by the Buddhist prayer wheels, my idea is to design an installation with several cylindrical wheels on a spindle illustrating monumental landmarks and milestones in those early years concurrent to the same area in today’s Melbourne. This installation will be a segway into the current infrastructure of Melbourne and its surrounding areas, meanwhile communicating the role that particular areas played in those years. This is meant to enable the audience to understand the evolution of Melbourne. It is also meant to revive the importance and roles those areas and routes played to facilitate the advancement and infrastructure we see today!
