Artist Designer

Kia ora, I have recently finished my Bachelors degree in Visual Communication Design with
First Class Honours at Massey University, Wellington. I am a Pākehā Artist Designer with a strong focus on typography, editorial, copywriting, dissemination and speculation, with the ability to shift my knowledge into various other medias and disciplines when needed. My work is primarily focused on ethics that are true to the moral of community, identity, the whenua and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and I wish to work in environments that work with these foundations too.

I am currently available for freelance work.
    Please get in touch to collaborate.

In anthropology, the term liminality is the quality of ambiguity that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage. During a rite’s liminal stage, participants “stand at the threshold” between their previous way of structuring their identity, time, or community, and a new way, which completing the rite establishes.

LIMINAL—ITY is a fictitious design conference that explores this threshold in the context of ‘Art’ and ‘Design’. These practices are seen in such isolation, but yet each facilitates the other under when treated under practices of ’Critical Thinking and Critical Making’. Separating practices into separate categories is merely tactile; prescribed notions of what makes ‘Art, art’ and ‘Design, design’ are upheld in our current societal state. This is stunting growth, development and exploration for ‘bigger and better things’.

LIMINAL—ITY aims to discuss the emergent practitioners and practices that transcend this threshold, helping us transition into a needed ‘middle stage’ of interdisciplinary critical making, thinking and artistic practice for a better future. It aims to break down the dichotomies of ‘Art’ and ‘Design’ and ‘abroad’.
