Joseph L. Griffiths’ unexpected installations Shelters bind creativity and survival, against the backdrop of a failed metropolis in Melbourne’s Docklands. Handmade entirely from natural and recycled materials collected on-site, these improvised dwellings, rafts and lookouts reclaim under-utilised spaces and drift between the wharves.

Art Exhibition previously on at 2012 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 19 May 2012 to Sunday 27 May 2012
