Commissioned by the City of Sydney, the ‘Westpac Wall of Fortune’ was conceived and created for the Chinese New Year Festival, Sydney.
The installation features a seven metre screen that flashes through 300 individual fortunes every minute. Festival goers are invited to snare their fortune simply by taking a photo of the fluctuating screen. With a new fortune appearing every 0.2 seconds, and with 600 unique messages, the activation is the digital equivalent to reaching into a giant jar of fortune cookies.

A concept car created for TBWA Sydney and NRMA Insurance. The challenge was to design and build a car using all the parts of a car that other insurers don’t insure.
The car was a fully functioning vehicle which toured the country. Overall the build took two months, five cars, and is comprised of over 50 extras.

To launch Telstra Air, thirty phone booths in Melbourne CBD were fitted with high powered light units, so powerful that flights were diverted during the activation. Every unit was able to be choreographed, controlled and monitored from a remote location using the WiFi network itself. Over five nights the lights were used to create a film, stills and content.

Tiger Beer was born on the bustling streets of Singapore. To celebrate this rich heritage Tiger Beer commissioned the ‘Wok’s of Art’ project. Twenty woks were collected from the street food districts of Singapore and then given to twenty selected artists in Australia and New Zealand. The entire endeavour was documented to create cinema advertising and the resulting woks are now permanently displayed in boutique bars.

‘Let’s Save Retirement’ is a commission from Clemenger BBDO Melbourne and MLC to visualise the sentiment that retirement was becoming a thing of the past.
A classic diorama was re-imagined to become an interactive installation housed in the Australian Museum. The diorama featured six live actors who, at the push of a button, enacted different ‘extinct’ retirement activities, including bush walking, cycling and fishing. The diorama was streamed live online, and allowed visitors remote and present to engage with the performers.

A commission for Randwick local council to encourage beachgoers to dispose of litter. The work rewarded those placing rubbish in appropriate bins with a performance from musician Ash Grunwald. When litter was inserted the sculptural stage would begin to rotate and the musician would play.
