Born in 1986, in Darwin, Northern Territory, Stephanie Martin is currently studying a Bachelor

of Creative Arts and Industries (Honours) at Charles Darwin University.


Recent works use light to bring common household objects to life, suggesting power beyond

materiality. Emerging from clear mass-produced vessels, dream-like imagery is captured in the home using

photography and video, alluding to the unconscious dimensions of daily life.


Having studied a Diploma of Arts in furniture design (RMIT) before completing a Bachelor of Fine

Art in object based practice (RMIT), experience in hand crafting objects led to an interest in mass-

produced wares.


In current works, the material burden of the mass-produced object in our world is

alleviated by light’s transformative quality, and the potential to perceive beyond the physical is

offered as a beacon for change.
