A long-held fascination with light is the inspiration for Michaela’s artistic practice. Light is the primary medium and the subject of her artworks which incorporate large scale immersive projection, moving image design, light-based materials and print. Michaela has extensive experience designing and creating innovative artworks, installations and projection spaces for planetaria, live performance, contemporary dance, museums and gallery exhibition.
Michaela’s artistic practice observes, mediates and examines light from multiple perspectives. Light is compelling in its capacity to be both universal and personal. As a subject, light invites attentive observation and as a material light facilitates an eclectic and highly collaborative creative practice, which moves across disciplines, genres and modes of thinking.
Michaela is a London based Australian artist, lecturer and researcher. She is a Visiting Lecturer in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art, London, where she is a PhD Candidate and leads the RCA Fulldome Research Group.
