Aislinn’s interest in creating immersive experiences fuelled her desire to design for performance. An early love for dance focused her thinking towards creating work inspired by movement and light.
Aislinn has a keen interest in all areas of creative industries, including fine art, design, photography, media and creative writing. Prior to NIDA, Aislinn took part in a gap year of travel
and studio workshops in order to explore contemporary design. This led her to examine the performative modes of expression integrating percussive set elements, immersive sound and light and spatial movement in body and material exploration.
At NIDA, Aislinn deepened her experience of these performative modes and interpretations in collaborative projects. She intends to create designs that are expressive and evocative, inspired by gesture. She is particularly drawn to spatial body relationships to set and light materialisation.
Aislinn is interested in interweaving all aspects of performance art, including dance, opera, film, theatre and audience interaction into her design practice. Aislinn looks forward to continuing to follow that direction, by pursuing the scope for temporal and transformative design.
