Arctic Bookends

Industrial Designer Katherine Morley develops her works with lashings of concept often followed by a dash of iconography. Produced for the exhibition Radiant Dark the Arctic Bookends reference the style of Lawren Harris’ paintings of icebergs. The Arctic Bookends reflect on certain human needs that are so readily met here in Canada yet, remain a great luxury to many in the world. The dark irony is that these luxuries are now at risk for all due to overindulgence, privatization, climate change to name but a few.
