In this year's Melbourne Design Week, renowned Melbourne artists Pamela Irving and Anne Riggs’ exhibition re-contextualised discarded objects and materials into new conversations. Their artworks raise conversations about consumption and waste, materials that go into landfill.

Sardine cans, an everyday object with a utilitarian design, was the foundation of their exhibition. Once the contents had been eaten, Irving+Riggs created the Omega Series - a play on the essential omega 3 vitamin and the Greek letter Omega, representing the end, the ultimate limit.
