Bachelor of Art + Design (Honours), 2010
Celia’s approach to Spatial Design has been the formation of communities. For her Honours project, she organised and curated a public art event in Ponsonby’s Western Park. Art in the Dark was an outdoor festival attended by around 8000 people, and included sculptural, installation, performance, and filmic artworks by local artists, supported by local businesses and residents. Light acted as a common bond, activating the park as a place for public assembly. The event demonstrated that public events and installation design can enable something more than distanced participation. Art in the Dark won Gold at the DINZ Best Awards in 2011, and is running again in 2012. On graduating, Celia worked as Project Coordinator for event design company Inside Out Productions, and has since started her own Spatial Design practice, Celery Productions.
