Danièle Hromek is a spatial designer and artist, fusing design elements with installations and sculptural form. Her work derives from her cultural and experiential heritage, often considering the urban Aboriginal condition, the Indigenous experience of Country, and contemporary Indigenous identities. Danièle is a lecturer and researcher considering how to Indigenise the built environment by creating spaces to substantially affect Indigenous rights and culture within an institution.
Danièle’s research contributes an understanding of the Indigenous experience and comprehension of space, and investigates how Aboriginal people occupy, use, narrate, sense, Dream and contest their spaces. It rethinks the values that inform Aboriginal understandings of space through Indigenous spatial knowledge and cultural practice; in doing so, it considers the sustainability of Indigenous cultures from a spatial perspective.
