By/Product challenges a group of three Australian makers and designers to repurpose/reuse discarded materials to produce a new line of handmade luxury goods.

The aim of the series is to highlight the value of raw materials and to recognise the threat of material scarcity on designers, artists and makers, and associated impacts on their artistic and commercial outcomes. Through this process, designers and makers work to rebuild structure, redefine aesthetic appeal and reinstate value in otherwise discarded materials.

By/Product forms part of the launch of Conscious Craft – a Craft Victoria initiative showcasing innovative creations by makers and designers who are actively considering sustainability and ethics in their production methods and use of materials.

This exhibition is part of Melbourne DesignWeek 2024, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV
