Maker

Bridget Harvey

Bridget Harvey is a maker, curator and activist working at the intersection of craft, design, making and remaking. Through her practice, Harvey playfully examines the ‘optional durability’ of our possessions and questions consumption and production, ownership and materiality. She tinkers with discarded objects to make artefacts from materials that initially seem past their best, simultaneously embedding, showing and hiding narratives. Harvey takes a broad and playful approach, which encompasses wearing her works, protesting, exhibiting, curating, hosting community workshops, researching, writing, and giving talks.
