Agency by Design: Expressive Design for Disability

Agency by Design: Expressive Design for Disability

artisan’s Agency by Design exhibition explores how design for disability does not follow a one size fits all model and is not only about functionality. New design is now being tailored to physical and expressive individual needs. Many of the designs profiled in Agency by Design allow the wearer to project a powerful image of how they want to be seen, whether that be glamorous, elegant, strong or simply just wanting to reveal their own life passions. Other designs enhance socialisation or provide individualised assisted technology solutions. The exhibition includes jewellery, apparel, ocular prosthetics, furniture and technology and includes the work of designers Leah Heiss and Carol Taylor, and organizations Bravery Co, Technology for Aging and Disability Queensland and Artificial Eyes Australia.
