Tea A’tyre


Art in Parks – Pop up public art project

I am often inspired by recyclable objects. I like to take objects that are often considered junk and ugly and turn them into something interesting and creates conversation.

Context: I am often inspired by recyclable objects. I like to take objects that are often considered junk and ugly and turn them into something interesting, eye catching and create conversation. This project takes used tyres and creates embodied in freestanding objects displayed throughout the thoroughfare of our smaller townships. I am a resident of Calliope and every day drive through the township. I find our town really uninspiring especial to attracting tourist to our city Centre. I want to give the smaller communities a chance to engage in art.

Goals:  Engage and introduce residence of Gladstone regional council and tourists to art made from recycled art.

Core Message: “United, we will still be here”. Being such a small community I would like to express our ability to unite within the community. As a result expressing it in and art form that will bring colour and interest to our city centres. Tea A’tyre brings about a place of conversation where total strangers will be engouraged to come and try the seats in hope of striking up a conversation of their neighbour.

Target Audience: Tourists, individuals and families

Project Concept: I wish to introduce 3 projects using the same resources to give my projects a greater significance to tourists.

Material: Recycled tyres, paint & found objects.
