Pinkey Square Collaboration

 A collaboration between Tara Whalley, Edith Barrett, Stephanie Rushworth.

Pinkey Square explored how as textile designers we can develop a positive, living relationship between textile and community. We created a textile to embody the ideals of slow living, illustrating a story and process with a common goal  to bring people together, to support, create and share.

The Tee-pee project began with drawing to-scale illustrations day and night for the tee pee, painting side by side on the 2 metre wide butchers paper. Illustrations embraced an imaginative Australiana aesthetic and were based on a Pinkey Square tale of three hairy creatures living in a world of native vegetation and adventures. 

 Collection story (continued)    Far far apart, until each land disappears off the horizon. Each are determined to find their way back to the mountain and back to their friends, but a long journey lies ahead, and the creatures find that they may need some help along the way, and make some friends on the road. The story is about a common goal to bring people together, to support and create dynamic networks, and most importantly, the joys of sharing life with others.

The illustrations were translated to screen and over 12 metres of cloth was hand screen printed and then sewn into large tee-pee panels. Their home now ready to be inhabited, we gave our three creatures a life through costume. Featuring wuzzy hand knitted balaclavas and hand screenprinted dresses for each 'creature'. To wrap up, whole story was captured in a collaborative musical film clip (see below).

ROO:
With a stampede of flies and sand in her eyes
she leaps through the bleak bleached land.
The land full of drought, her head full of doubt ;
as she craves the warmth of their hands.
Every jump is a pest, every breath is a test
as she now feels the stress of her plight.
Through the bush laced with heat hear her wild old heart beat
for those lost and far from her sight.

(Eddie Alexander, 2012)

POSSUM:
When the first bird calls and the sunlight falls
you wake to a cold barren scope.
the wind became thieves of the eucalypt leaves
and the sight drained your soul of all hope.
Now call on the birds who float in the lofts,
old eagles and gentle black kites.
For they killed the storm and kept your heart warm
as you wake with your friends in their heights.

(Eddie Alexander, 2012)

EMU:

Through the sweeping plains and the shivering plains
you run through the slippery mud.
The dark shadows that the moon borrows has begun to thicken your blood.
Swim through the lakes, grieve with the quakes
and dream of the mountains you seek.
And then in the sun will your ancestry run
to your friends in the perilous peaks.

(Eddie Alexander, 2012)

Collection story

It is the tale of three hairy creatures, all different and unique, who strike up a strong and unexpected friendship. They live in an eden- fresh fruit, flowers flourishing and lush vegetation, and they spend their days climbing, fishing, fort building and burrowing networks under the ground. Every day they meet atop the tallest mountain in the land. That is until one day, a disastrous moment occurs! As they frolic in the field, the ground beneath their feet begins to tremble and shake! Before their very eyes the land on which they are standing moves apart.
