Floodplain platters showing parent platter with two children. Photo by Penny Evans Evans speaks for many when she says that being of Aboriginal heritage offers advantages when working in contemporary design. “We are connected to the oldest and most continuous culture in the world,” she says. “Our traditional designs are distinctive in a general way, but are also highly individualised as well. Innovation is always occurring in live cultural practices, and Aboriginal Australia is extremely diverse in design and art output, whether from remote camps or urban centres.”
