Architecture for the Animals is the immersive body of work by Melbourne based Photographer Rohan Hutchinson. The series is a departure point from his previous large-scale works and explores the intimate relationships between space and publication design, taking his interest in photo-book making into another realm, within the gallery.
Throughout the exhibition the viewer is presented with a variety of visual representations, these range from framed photographs that document Patterns and layering in Ecology and Geology, Scientific plates that capture Animal habitats within the South Thailand Sea and a series of publication layouts that pay homage to early 1970s Japanese photo book design.
Works are created to either hang or rest on a shelf as if a book. An unbound publication as created, where owners can explore all the variance in layout possibilities.
