Elliat Rich is an artist, producer, researcher, experimenter and resource developer, plus other modes of practice that sit within her process as designer. She is based within the complex socio-bio-historical ecology of Mparntwe Alice Springs.
For Rich the design process is a creative translation between materials and culture, alive to a broader context of power and social value. Lead by curiosity, enriched through wonder and always calling on the possibilities of the imagination.
She is in the deep time / present matrix of designing a new mythology of cellular-cosmology and poly-temporal ways of being through Mythica Ignota; A Compendium of the Oscillocene, vol. 2:1.
Rich works with many distinguished clients and collaborators within central Australia and nationally. Her practice covers cross-cultural resources, exhibition design, public art and furniture design. Her limited-editioned object-orientated explorations are held in numerous public and private collections.
Rich spends her winters taking long walks in one of the adjacent central deserts with her family in a camel drawn wagon.
