ELLIAT RICH (NT)
Elliat Rich runs a successful design practice from her home and studio in Alice Springs in Central Australia creating all types and scale of civic and privately commissioned work. Her location and the different briefs she encounters as a designer make her exotic to us city folk.
A chair that gets more beautiful with age and wear. The undercurrent of Elliat Rich’s practice is to recognise the simple moments or objects within the everyday that deserve or facilitate contemplation. Expanding on simplicity reveals the true complexity of the everyday, the layers of meaning and understanding within the habitus. There is no ‘basic’ simple, the material, the form of an object, its use all come with layers of cultural understanding. By celebrating the ‘simplified’ we can see how rich our lives are.
