Connecting art with the everyday Melissa Durbin light-heartedly utilises other artists work to inspire “practical” products intended to reinvigorate dull household chores and mundane personal admin tasks.

Video mockcommercials playfully capture the possibility of not coping with careers and the pressures of maintaining, running and cleaning one’s body and home.

Durbin questions the often ridiculous, seductive and dissatisfying nature of consumerist culture and its impact.
