Ellen Ferrier is an installation based artist in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Exploring the possibilities of traditional and emergent sustainable materials and technologies, she creates speculative objects and architectures as propositions for a future built on an ethics of care, connection and reciprocity. Ferrier will use the $10,000 scholarship to fund material investigations and fabrication of her work for Cementa24 - an immersive installation featuring experimental eco-cements made with problematic plant species for Kandos, a town established and made famous for its cement production.
