Urban fox tales

Little foxes wander Melbourne’s laneways. A series of tiny poems that chronical their adventures. They will be left in and around laneways in the CBD in the lead up to the festival.

The Very Pointy Hat

Melbourne based plastic instigator Legojacker draws upon the all too familiar world of oppressive regimes and popular uprising, with his LEGO photo story ‘The Very Pointy Hat’. Featuring his trademark style of plastic mini-figures photographed in the real world, the story documents the final days of an evil king and his very pointy hat with the unique power to create monsters and make people disappear. Photographed in Melbourne’s iconic Hosier Lane, The Very Pointy Hat shows that a playful plastic story can be a powerful one. The Very Pointy Hat will unfold over the duration of the festival and can be found on the Instagram feed @legojacker or by visiting the Instagram hashtag #theverypointyhat.

Haikubirds for Fresh Air 2014
I started making Haikubirds over a year ago. Each bird is a sculpture with an accompanying haiku.
The birds have been set free in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and Lebanon. I will set free a few Haikubirds as part of Fresh Air 2014 and some mini Zines in the laneways of Melbourne.
Find one and it’s yours.
