TELL ALL borrows designs from Haywood’s past interrogation of an Australian colonised landscape.  Here Haywood applies Australian motifs within Thai cultural crafts, applying alternative social and cultural meaning while experimenting with ideas of oneness and other through cultural gesture.

The shimmer of hand beaten aluminium, reflects the tradition of the 700 year old Thai repoussè technique, whilst fused with the cultural twang of fruit carving. Another 700 year old technique, although now, mainly found within a 'farang' or touristic context.

The borrowed craft techniques create an absurd introspection of one’s culture and the customs that surround it. Culturally charged concepts are exchanged from one to the other. Haywood asks the Thai culture and indeed her own to ‘Tell all’- in an explicit and animated act.
