Natalie McLeod

Lecturer in Textile Design

School of Design

Natalie McLeod's creative practice-based research investigates new ways to generate and experience pattern in the post-digital age. She experiments with repeat pattern specific to the design and production of printed textiles and how knowledge in this area can be extended by contemporary digital media technologies such as virtual modelling, interactive devices, animation and digital spatial projection. This cross-disciplinary approach also explores perception and experience of scale, form and space through virtual and physical means in creative works disseminated at venues in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Her teaching areas include design for screen and digitally printed textiles and wall-coverings.
