The hosiery mills in Albert street, Brunswick closed down last year, the last of its kind in Australia. The specialised equipment in the factory has been sold to an overseas manufacturer.
I used the lines and form of the beautiful old sign to influence my design. Through the use of handmade chain, buttons and hand stitching I explored the everyday objects that once were made by hand, then moved to being created through manufacturing and are now mostly imported from countries where they are pumped out in the millions and are often made using the cheapest materials and processes available.
