About the artist:
Dr. Bin Dixon-Ward’s artistic interest is in the role of digital technology in contemporary jewellery practice. Her recent PhD examined the grid as a technology of the city and how interactions between humans and the grid, inject an organic quality to the rigid logic of the built environment. Her jewellery practice captures this interaction in wearable work that is both a product of technology and human engagement.
Her work is held in collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, The Museum of Arts and Sciences, Sydney, Musee des Artes Decoritifs Paris and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Bin has undertaken residencies at the Australian National University, Canberra and the East China Normal University (ECNU), Shanghai. Bin is a sessional lecturer at RMIT University, School of Art and is a regular guest lecturer at ECNU.
