Elliat Rich

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.
