On an island the tidal zone, the space where the land and sea meet, is the 'edge' that delineates the island's geographical space. But this is also a shifting space in which discarded, found and natural materials are collected and combined after the tide has washed away the previous landscape.

The 'tidal zone' is a place for disruption, unusual juxtapositions, change and new creation. Members of the furniture designers association have created a wide range of objects from sculptural to practial, but all exploring the space on the edge of this island. Recycled materials, natural materials and unusual combination all appear in the pieces in the exhibition.

Tidal Zone is a touring exhibition from the Design Centre in Tasmania in conjunction with the Furniture Designers Association of Tasmania. It includes works from both emerging and nationally prominent designers such as Patrick Hall, Kevin Perkins, Pippa Dickson and John Smith.

Exhibition curators: Dr Astrid Wootton and Linda Fredheim.

Tidal Zone can be seen at ArtGeo from 21 September to 21 October.

Official opening presentation by Dr Astrid Wootton.
