ReForm takes council clean-up day to a whole new level. Design collective thefortynine has scoured the quiet laneways of Sydney, collecting discarded material and transforming them into useful, beautiful and sometimes playful objects. This temporary installation investigates how we can re-use and re-value materials and objects. Australia fosters a creative DIY culture, but we rarely see this in action in urban areas. ReForm tries to encourage this culture by showing how notions of old and new are projected, and how easily an object can move from one to another.
Watch an interview with the designers from thefortynine at the launch of their Reform exhibition, as they talk to their work and discuss the concepts behind the collective.
Sydney Design events will be filmed by Powerhouse Museum staff and the content will be used by the Museum for promotion and this includes uploading into Powerhouse Museum accounts across a variety of third party platforms.
