Elliat Rich

Showing 3 October to 15 December 2024

Elliat Rich is a designer, furniture maker and deep thinker who has created a multi-facted creative practice that is led by curiosity, wonder and the possibilities of the imagination.

She is based within the complex and enriching socio-bio-historical ecology of Mparntwe Alice Springs, Central Australia, where she works across a broad-spectrum of design for a diverse client base. Drawing inspiration from mythology, art, poetry, and anthropology. Rich describes the use of story, artefacts, collaboration, and observations as Designing Mythology which is an ongoing experiment into making enough of a mythic scaffold to counter colonial structures, celebrate through wonder and provide an experience of belonging.
