Te Uru is a space that activates movement and viewing through its design, leading you through spaces, up stairwells and looking out of windows. Working with this space, ‘Activate’ is a series of 9 brooches that are made from the construction plywood that supports them. The support structures simulate the space, imitating how it entices a viewer’s movement and viewing positions, with its windows and angled shelving, enabling multiple perspectives. The brooches are decorated with mono-prints created from drafting tools; Steel ruler, French curve, ellipse templet and compass. This then inspired how pieces were cut, some with a mitre, and reconfigured into the finished brooches.
