G'day, Pleased to 'Yeast' Ya!

G’day, pleased to ’yeast’ ya!

This was an incredibly fun collaborative project to work on. Upon receiving the brief, I was excited to create a fun and quirky piece. The brief states that I must create something that represents my country. My first step was to interview a number of Australian-born then non Australian-born on their perception of an iconic Australiana art piece. Some named flowers, cars, iconic structures i.e. Sydney Harbour Bridge and so on. But I needed one element that ties all Australians – an everyday element that resembles the epitome of a typical Australian home. That’s how the Vegemite idea came to mind.
