Another free exhibition in State of Design (seeing a theme here?), this time in the foyer of the Adelphi Hotel. All in Good Hindsight is a design practice all about sustainability, so they’ve come up with a novel way to use up all those millions of metcards Melburnians throw away every year.

1277 Past Use By‘ is all about giving a new, artistic life to an everyday object that has passed its use by date. So the colourful metcards have been turned into lampshades, a miniscule sculpture of a wheelbarrow-pushing man and framed art. A very creative extension to all those preschool projects we used to do with paddlepop sticks and egg cartons!
