In July 2017, Tai participated in a residency at Satellietgroep DCR Gueststudios, The Hague, where she developed a series of video and sound works exploring the metaphorical linkages between The Hague’s coastline and climate change. 
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Melanie Irwin has initiated an ambitious new project that will explore the possibilities of amassing the habitable bubbles of her previous works to create ‘foam’ in a series of large-scale tableaux. The work will draw on ideas from physics and maths, feminism, and the philosophy of Peter Sloterdijk, and will incorporate sculpture, installation, performance and a series of large-scale editioned photographic prints, to be exhibited in 2019.
