RESEARCH + PRACTICE
Belinda is an artist, architect and biologist, holding a BSc in Molecular Biology and a Masters in Architecture from RMIT University. Belinda teaches History and Design in the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University.
Belinda’s practice encompasses drawing, writing, sculpture, model making and mapping, as modes into the destabilization of existing structures (hierarchies, polarities and other existing relationships). The practice takes these through ambiguity to ultimately produce ‘heterarchies’ and analogues. These translations are achieved by engaging in a process of ‘derivative recombination’ whereby existing relationships are challenged and severed, fragments are recombined, and ultimately new relationships emerge through a process of pattern recognition, speculation and experimentation.
Current fascinations are: Jennifer Bloomer’s ‘Architecture and the Text: The (S)crypts of Joyce and Piranesi’, and the dialogue between Eileen Gray and Le Corbusier as played out by their unfortunate entanglement through the work at E1027.
