‘I, Object: A Monument to Aged Care’ aims to extend the role of architecture from one solely of marketable design, into the political realm. How can architecture be used as a tool to unveil the invisible, bring-to-bare notions of political injustice and cement those injustices into the public realm? The aim of ‘I, Object’ was not to solve the problems of the aged care system, as students, architects and designers over the years have tried to with superficial designs that brush over deeply entrenched systemic issues. ‘I, Object’ brings the injustices of aged care in Australia to the painfully exposed foreground. The project creates a mythology, through the profound curiosity that this speculative project would attract. As the memorial ages and rusts, similar to our ageing population, it lays firmly cemented in the public and political realm, demanding to be heard.
