Alana Fahey

RESEARCH + PRACTICE

Alana’s most recent research locates itself within Melbourne’s art and design culture and is interested in the potential for conversation and collaboration across disciplines. The project explores how the application of an art dialogue to the spatial environment can further our understanding and critique of spatial experience. Taking visual cues from local galleries, the research proposes how methods of display might translate to strategies for design beyond the gallery and across multiple typologies and spatial outcomes. 

Alana’s practice values design that is experimental and conversational; often holding close theoretical ties to conceptual and contemporary art practices. She often employs a combination of photography, drawing and model making to concurrently mediate between 2D and 3D experiments for design.

Alana is a recent graduate of RMIT’s Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours).
