Differing Perspectives by Jordan Leeflang and Calum Hurley
Responding to photographs of metropolitan Japan, Calum Hurley and Jordan Leeflang have created sculptural objects and pieces of furniture inspired by six different photographs. Each image – captured by Hurley in 2017 – was chosen to show the country’s unique architectural forms and urban landscape. The images display a strong representation of national design identity that both artists have experienced at different stages of their lives. With differing design outcomes emerging from a singular source, audiences are invited to trace the stylistic patterns and individual touches that emerge from each artist. The presentation of the original source image along with the resulting forms prompts viewers to engage with the work personally and conceptualise their own interpretations.
