Bird studied architecture at RMIT University and developed professionally in Melbourne’s ‘ideas-lead’ architectural scene of Cassandra Fahey and ARM Architecture. Both were environments where research, creative thinking and what-if design established his interests in the unorthodox, pursuing speculative and culturally symbolic ideas. In 2008 Bird started his practice Studiobird and commenced a practice-based PhD at RMIT University under the supervision of Professor Leon van Schaik AO. Over the next four years Bird undertook a series of practice-based research projects including installation, scenography and sculpture that examined his methodologies, motivations and fuelled his emergent interdisciplinary practice ambitions.
Afterlife (2017) was specially designed for Office for Metropolitan Architecture's 2017 MPavilion to transform the interior into an interactive installation that invited audiences to experience an immersive and performative encounter with the afterlife. The installation was composed of a celestial field of reimagined jerrycans that produced chance and compositional harmonies via playful audience manipulation, and a series of commissioned performances in collaboration with composer Daniel Von Jenatsch, choreographic artist Phillip Adams and fashion designer Pia Interlandi.
Dormitorium (2017) was an interactive installation exhibited at McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park (Langwarrin). The rotating work is presented as a communal sleep chamber and exploratory environment that encourages audiences to engage with a complexity of sensory propositions, from textures and materials to the immersive effects of moving light and sound technologies. Bird’s research led to an extensive exploration in the changing traditions of bedchamber aesthetics and the potential these spaces have to profoundly affect the way we rest and rejuvenate.
Theodore Treehouse (2016), an apartment fit-out in Melbourne features pop references and pushes the boundaries of decoration for a residential space. The spaces within the home are innovative and theatrical, while also inviting, incredibly crafted and utterly bespoke. With each room curated in equal measure as part installation exhibit, part stage, the interior contains a touch of the "whimsical voyeur," leaving us wanting to peep a little further. Theodore Treehouse uses a non-traditional delivery strategy. The impeccable execution and playful experimentation of this project contributes in an extremely positive and joyous way to contemporary decoration practice.
Sarcophagus (2016), exhibited at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale invited audiences to experience an immersive environment of simulated sleep-states. This multidimensional architectural installation renders creative curiosities of biological and induced respite, challenging a range of aesthetic, cultural and behavioural concerns. Users are invited to physically occupy the installation offering an unusual interactive experience. The environment is dynamic with the interior transforming with the aid of a multichannel film, filling the intimate chamber with abstract cinematic and meditative sound and imagery.
