Design for the Mind

Cargo 08, a new design installation to test the minds-eye by Melbourne-based artist Yandell Walton.

Design for the Mind


February 21st, 2008

Presented as part of the 2008 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program, Cargo 08 examines the convergence of design and art through a sophisticated projection technique, obscuring the perception of real space.

Visitors to the event will experience a ’trick of the eye’, as images of the female form are projected onto a three-dimensional designed sculpture cast. What appears to be a living and breathing female will appear trapped inside packing crates.


Since completing her Masters of Fine Art at RMIT in 2005, Walton has exhibited in galleries both nationally and internationally, exhibiting projection and video installations to uncover a metaphor for the interior space of the psyche.

Walton has steadily developed her profile as a media artist to watch since she was granted the Melbourne Fringe Festival Visual Arts Award 2005 and the Siemens Scholarship in both 2003 and 2004 for her projection installations.

Event Location: Shed 9 Docklands (western end)
Dates: 1st – 9th March, 2008, dusk till 10.30pm nightly
Opening Event: Saturday 1st March, Alumbra (western end Shed 9) 8pm
