Room is a sculptural installation that addresses notions of individual choice and decision-making in relation to the habitual and familiar. Human-scale sculptural objects evocative of humble bedroom or motel-room furnishings inhabit the gallery. The objects reference black and white directional signage of Australian suburban and regional roadways, inviting the audience to navigate the space. In this work tactility and aspects of the everyday coalesce with the absurdity of the objects to prompt subjective memories and responses.
