Throughout the Pouch Lamp project I have explored several key aesthetic and conceptual themes related to the idea of deep time, such as geological features, palaeobotanical imagery, natural resource extraction and sustainable materials.

 

I have focussed on an intersection between the forms of endemic flora and fauna and have included unexpected materials and contemporary features. I feel it is this unexpectedness bordering on the absurd that defines my idea of the Australian Design Identity.
