Dr Roger Kemp is the Associate Dean of Interior Design.
Dr Roger Kemp's background in commercial and hospitality design has informed his interest in the way in which interiors form a significant spatial and social contribution to the workings of a contemporary city.
He has extensive education experience in a range of settings in Interior Design. He has lead teaching workshops in a number of institutions including Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Doha, Qatar, Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea, and La Salle in Singapore.
Roger's active interdisciplinary design research practice, "Making Distance", in collaboration with Anthony Fryatt, utilises a range of media including film, installation, exhibition, drawings, models, montage, and text to explore interiors beyond the restrictive parameter of interior space as a condition of the enclosure. His work has been shown at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI); Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha; Brighton University, UK; Form Gallery, State of Design Festival; Bus Projects; forty-five downstairs; Pinup Gallery; Federation Square; Channel 31 and Australian Film, Television, and Radio School (AFTRS). It has also been shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards.
