Why do we hold onto objects?
How do objects and memories connect? What happens when a treasured object breaks and how can we repair it?
Australian Design Centre and Hotel Hotel present Object Therapy, an exhibition and project exploring creative transformation and notions of value and repair.
29 broken objects, submitted by the public, have been 'repaired' and re-imagined by noted Australian
and international designers and artists.
