Theresa works primarily with graphic design, including motion graphic design, books, and poster design. During the exhibition, the virtual space of 1CM Gallery will be turned into a glowing wavelength by her past design projects.
“Newhere Lands is an on-going investigation amongst souvenirs, coat of arms/flags, and nationalism. The thesis uses subversion as a device to reimagine symbolism in a form of an object (souvenir).”
