Agatha Gothe-Snape: The Scheme Was A Blueprint For Future Development Programs

Designed in collaboration with Agatha Gothe-Snape, 2015

Agatha Gothe-Snape’s public artwork titled “The Scheme Was A Blueprint For Future Development Programs”, which is installed at the Caulfield campus of Monash University, is a space designed to remind visitors that the university is not only a place of education, but also a place of re-making and constant flux. The specially delineated zone, which combines textual and graphic elements that draw from fields of psychology and cartography, suggests an alternative way to navigate the predictability of large institutions. In collaboration with the artist, we produced a diverse range of corporate giftware (a drawstring backpack, a USB slap band, a print-on-demand USER GUIDE, a set of seven collectable posters, a t-shirt, a set of three collectable balloons, and a suite of digital animations) which were presented to visitors during a public workshop in which the artist invited participants to navigate and orientate themselves to the space. This provided a conceptual framework to extend and support the artist’s expression, but also acted as documentation of the artwork and a commentary on corporate mediation of the push and pull between institution and individual.
