Elliot Hume



House-work encourages the sustained use of everyday objects from the past by re-presenting them in scenes inspired by instances of personalised memory. Each scene has then inspired the redesign of my own dwelling; a timber-framed double story house built in 1900. By incorporating the objects into an existing, contemporary setting, the user is more connected to the moments of home, memory can continue to accumulate and materialism is redefined.
Majoring in Spatial, my approach to design is not bound by only one discipline. My most successful work to date has centred around Spatial, experience and graphic design which has been driven with a passion for narrative, sustaining presence and the use of both analogue and digital techniques.
