The Habitallery team project was to communicate with the public by promoting subtle shifts within the everyday life of the city, awareness of the The Habitallery persona and of one’s own habits within their urban surroundings.
This was achieved by extracting mundane aspects and input of the urban fabric and its inhabitants and then re-issuing these ideas back into the public realm to promote self awareness and a sense of intrigue in relation to their environment. In this particular urban context of Melbourne, already heavily saturated with ‘interesting things to look at and do’ from both formal and informal channels, we intended to complement existing informal urban practices (I.U.P) with a fresh take through unexplored avenues and experiments we felt were interesting, effective or evocative. We endeavored to let The Habitallery project unfold naturally and become self defining.
