Community Gallery April 15th-28th 2011

Nostalgia surrounding New Zealand household objects of the 1960s and 1970s period.

This work investigates the unique ‘Kiwi household’ style and historical factors that shaped it. The images are designed to instil a sense of generic nostalgia through the viewing of household objects still in current use and original context without relying on stereotypes.

A large amount of data was collected from various Morrinsville residences, this went towards the conclusions of the thesis which is the basis of the concepts for this exhibition.

Thank you to all those who helped.
