The Way Life Should Be

The Way Life Should Be responds to place, fiction and the depiction of Australian culture and society through twisted narratives and collected tourist ephemera – using hundreds of vintage souvenir linen tea towels – collected from towns all over the country. These tea towels are being used to re-upholster everyday mid-century footstools. Little, domestic representations of place and a society in transition.
