Donald Preston is a designer and educator researching the visual expression of national identity, cultural narrative and signification. His focus on New Zealand’s historic and contemporary cartographic representation provides a fresh approach to issues of identity and cultural expression.
Preston has loved and been fascinated by real and imagined maps from an early age. The atlases of his childhood took him to exotic places that seemed far more exciting than small town New Zealand.
Preston’s research contributes to conversations on the construction, development and expressions of national identity, and how they can inform and create insights into the 21st century.
