Lecturer in Design

Tess’ practice pursues a sculptural or filmic understanding of collage, informed by theatrical design and choreography

Tess is an artist with a background in sculpture, video, sound art and theatre design. Central to Tess' practice is a theatrical engagement with the human body, as an object or detail participating in and impacting on its environs. Often working with choreography, script and collage, she explores where the intersection of theatre and design practice can converge with narrative structures, repetition and unique social histories.
