Cartonography is the mapping of Australian fruit cartons. It is an ongoing collection, map and research archive by Sean Rafferty. Cartonography is building up a collection of fruit cartons and (where possible) their associated stories from across rural and regional Australia to create an online or ‘soft’ museum, which will occasionally tour as an exhibition. Eventually we hope to have a permanent accessible archive where the cartons can be browsed in physical form.
Cartonography acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which its projects take place, and pays its respects to the Elders both past and present.
Please visit the links below for more information on the collection in the form of articles and other media. Please visit the home page to browse blog entries about current and past projects.
