Pop-up pirate

Students from the VCA & RMIT & Swinburne have conspired to put together a pop-up “pirate” radio tower in Southbank, Melbourne. Designed by U.S. architect of things containerised, Adam Kalkin, with possible allusions to Sydney Nolan’s Ned Kelly, the tower is made from several old shipping containers. It’s covered in a camouflage design, but I think the authorities will spot it. It’s all part of the Ian Potter Museum’s Mis-design exhibition. “Mis-Design conceives of and affirms a future for art, outside of the art world, as a parasite in the complex machinery of consumer culture.”
