Bachelor of Art + Design (Honours), 2009
Motivated by images of plastic waste accumulating in the Pacific Gyre and floating in waterways, Emily’s Honours project, A Small Act (see her project blog) sought to create public awareness via four local site-specific miniature cities. Each city related to a key part of Auckland’s water system, and held a QR code that provided links to information, resources and helpful tips. The project was a mix of curating, web design, installation, and urban design. Since graduating, Emily has been part of a team that won both Gold and Bronze at the DINZ Best Awards in 2010. She has worked for Designworks, collaborated with We Love Inc. and is now employed with Cheshire Architects.
