The Wanderlust Collection

participatory projects

My Mum always says, never travel without a 'useful piece of cloth'. If need be, one simple scarf could also function as a towel, blanket or even shelter depending on the adventure at hand. This collection of designs for such useful cloths needs you...

The Wanderlust Collection is a participatory artwork inspired by the insatiable desire to know a place like a local, and the adventure and joy in attempting to do so.

It therefore invites you to stoke its fires and spark it's designs through contributing images, words and feelings of where you live to share with others who long to explore.

The design inspired by your place will be shared digitally with you and named after you as a thank you for taking part.

Let's feed our collective wanderlust.


Images: To collect stories of far-flung places from around the world I hosted a workshop at xóm bắc cầu Cultural Space on the jungly outskirts of Hanoi as part of the Made In Vietnam Zine launch and exhibition. We heard stories of well-loved places from Brazil, to Germany, Australia and Bristol, and will be designing scarves based on these contributions.
