Do you have an object that's broken but too good to throw out, yet you can't seem to find the time to fix it?
Instead of fixing it yourself, why not have an artist transform it into a one-of-a-kind work.
The latest project from Hotel Hotel's Fix and Make series, Object Therapy is looking at the perception that repaired objects are less valuable, and to challenge the notion with the idea that repair as a creative process can add value.
They're looking for people to donate damaged or broken household objects, whether they are textiles, homewares, furniture, electrical goods or even sentimental items, which will be given to artists and either repaired or transformed into something completely different.
If you want to submit an object, you just must be willing to part with it during the repair and leave the result in the capable hands of the artist.
The artists and designers working their magic on the pieces are Dr Guy Keulemans, Henry Wilson, Naomi Taplin, and Trent Jansen from Sydney, Dale Hardiman from Melbourne, plus locals Rohan Nicol and Niklavs Rubenis.
Participants will also be interviewed about their object before and after its transformation as part of a research project by Fix and Make, ANU and UNSW.
Applications for broken objects are open until Sunday, June 5, at fixandmake.com.au. The final objects will be on display at an exhibition at Hotel Hotel on September 29.
