Dr. Katherine Moline


Dr Katherine Moline is a Senior Lecturer in research practices and Postgraduate Coordinator: Admissions for Masters by Research and PhDs at UNSW Art & Design. Katherine explores the cross-overs between avant-gardism in visual art and contemporary experimental design. Her particular interests are how experimental design reformulates strategies of historic artistic avant-gardes and the social pacts of design. Since co-convening the symposium sds2k4: Experimental and Cross-Cultural Design (2004), a collaboration between the University of New South Wales, University of Technology Sydney and the University of Western Sydney,  she curated the exhibition Connections: Experimental Design (2007) and introduced international leaders in experimental and critical design to Australian audiences. More recent projects she has written for, exhibited in or curated include Red Objects (2011), Cross Pollination (2012), Feral Experimental (2014), Experimental Practice: Provocations in and Out of Design (2015), and Experimental Thinking: Design Practices (2015). Her research has been published in numerous journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, and exhibition catalogues. As an exhibiting artist, Katherine’s work investigates how design processes and technologies can be diverted to the production of experiential and conceptual interactions at Yuill Crowley Gallery, Sydney.

Current research projects include a critical review of research methodologies in art and design, experimental workshops on social practices with mobile telephones titled Myths of the Near Future, and a number of ongoing systems artworks, including Persons of Interest at Fisher Library, the University of Sydney.
