FOR INDIGO

A reading of the Book of Kells

as a personal text of Celtic diasporic consciousness

INCIPIT

A consensus within the Melbourne design community
Tony Ward (AFW) was educated into and has participated in for half a century could variously profile him. As a teacher. An illustrator. A sometime adman. An ironic participating commentator on Australian cultural well being. As exemplified in his direct application of personally acquired learning across a diverse design practice and concurrently design education he is – in his own opinion – merely an illuminator not a creator of knowledge. No so different to the artist/scribe that sought to imbue experience of a text for his antecedents with the significance of the truths it contained, in the language of their place and time. Or the Iban storyteller/weaver of the pua kumbu of Sarawak, where he will be based in 2011, as a lecturer in Graphic Design at Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak and an illuminator of first truths for students in the early years of a new design programme.

    That’s great news for you Tony + the close audience you will no doubt effect in the manner of the “real” world. Lucky students . . . lucky you.
    There’s a link on viewersite where Barb and I managed a most spiritual interaction with fabrics from varied Asian cultures – here:
