'Home: A Look at Sustainable Living' ~ 2017

A design and architecture exhibition for the built environment focusing on sustainability in the Scenic Rim.  The team comprised of myself (the artist), a landscape architect, building designer and esd engineer.  We were the only contribution that actively explored cultural sustainability as part of our holistic proposal and engaged the local indigenous community in the development of the concept for 'Mununujali Cultural Centre'.

Co-ordinated by the Scenic Rim Regional Council in collaboration with Scenic Rim Heritage Network.

Exhibited at 'The Centre' Beaudesert, Queensland.

Catalyst Church Public Art Commission ~ 2016

The Catalyst Church in Ipswich honoured the heritage of this site by thoughtfully reworking an existing metal foundry to create a church, community facility and café for parishioners.

Contracted by Smith Architects, Jay Dee was asked to provide elements that would serve to tie the different buildings within the site together and provide warm but dynamic focal points for the architectural

refurbishment. Using her knowledge of biophilia, Jay Dee created a screen system and wallpaper design to be incorporated throughout the complex.

This project subsequently won a heritage and design award through the Ipswich City Council in 2016.

MA (Visual Art) ~ 2015

The Master of Arts in Visual Arts (Queensland College of Art - Griffith University) expanded my practice as a fine artist from paper based techniques such as drawing, watercolour, printing and photography (analogue and digital) into a public art context. The installation consisted of a mobile projector, video projections and performance.  The mobile projector is a second-hand trishaw that I refurbished and modified to provide electricity on-the-go for the projections and accompanying music.

The project culminated in a site-specific public artwork located at Urban Climb, West End – a popular rock climbing venue in Brisbane.

'Fish Lane Follies' Public Art Event ~ 2015

Fish Lane Follies was a projection art installation for an event held in conjunction with Brisbane City Council and the University of Queensland School of Architecture.  Set in Fish Lane (South Brisbane) this art piece explored human relationships with biophilic patterns through ocean forms as part of the themed festival.
