Forever & always

The Lovelocks Project was an initiative of the City of Melbourne in partnership with Craft Victoria. Local artists transformed the padlocks removed from the Southbank Footbridge into everlasting works of art and jewellery. The removal was necessary for safety concerns and damage to the bridge. DWD was commissioned to design a memento box and publication for a public art project. The artwork and the memento boxes, containing heart shaped sculptural objects, were exhibited at the Melbourne Town Hall in August 2016.
