Graphic Design study of symbols across culture. Focus on the symbolic style of Aboriginal Art and their cultural example of living in harmony with Nature. Students researched 10 ways to change our lifestyles to respect the Earth and designed symbols for modern practices in Aboriginal graphic styles. They transferred their designs onto possum skin cloaks - which was the practice of Aboriginal clans of New Sotuh Wales. They etched designs of natural surroundings and important life events into possum skin cloaks that they kept for all of their lives. We imported Australian possum skins from New Zealand (an invasive species on that island) and used the pelts to replicate the possum skin cloajs project at the Melbourne Museum. The modern cloak that we sewed represents the practices with which we need to wrap around our lives to respsct and preserve our planet.
