Australian Inventions

Powerhouse Museum museum exhibition / interpretive
Trigger designed an interpretive wall, title and theme panels for a mini exhibition: "Australian Inventions' at the Powerhouse Museum. The main object featured is a mouse-trap machine, designed by A.W Standfield. It was used continuously at the Baxter Road factory, Mascot, between 1942 and 2000, producing about 96 million mouse traps. The design creates a factory/warehouse space and echoes the whirring circular forms of the machine through circular information panel discs. Sketches from some of the inventors appear as 'graffiti' on the wall. Trigger worked in collaboration with the Powerhouse Museum and designer Carola Salazar. The mini exhibition is a satellite exhbibit of the 'Wallace and Gromit: World of Invention Exhibition'.
