T3D IS AN ARTISTIC PARTNERSHIP WHO COLLABORATE WITH ARTISTS, ARCHITECTS, FABRICATORS, BUILDING USERS AND GOVERNMENT BODIES, TO CREATE SITE SPECIFIC ARTWORKS
Amanda Kay - Artist - Director
Amanda Kay is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in public spaces. Responding to the needs of the stakeholders, Amanda creates site specific artwork that links the community to space and place. In 2019 she was awarded an opportunity to work with “The Cube” at Queensland University of Technology. During her residency with her life partner and co-founder of T3D (The 3rd Door Artist Studios), she worked on the development of an interactive digital artwork that explored human impact over the past 200 years, referencing topics raised in the Great Acceleration Graphs. This work was displayed on 20 touch screens and 2 projection screens that span two levels of the university. Amanda continues to explore the many questions raised within this residency period through a mentorship with Michael Gissing from Digital City Studios.
Jerome Dobinson - Artist - Director
Jerome specialises in public art installation, contemporary art, and graphic design. His style and subject matter are heavily influenced by computer technologies and processes not normally associated with the act of making art and serve as a vehicle to explore the role of painting and fine art in contemporary culture.
Jerome’s deepest passions lie in painting, drawing and design. A recent example of this can be seen in a work titled ‘Medusa’, selected as a finalist in the 2017 Kilgour Art Prize and makes up part of a series of ongoing bitmap paintings. Using pixelation to depict a life-size female nude, the work raises issues related to gender whilst challenging the role of traditional figurative painting in today’s society.
