Melbourne / New York


About Us

We are Tin&Ed, artists and designers working between New York and Melbourne Australia. We work fluidly between the physical and the digital worlds creating installations, images and motion projects for cultural, institutional and commercial clients alike.

Our work explores the ways in which we are all connected, to nature, our urban environment, and most importantly to each other. We are interested in how technology can open up new ways of perceiving and understanding the world around us, as well as aid in collaborative art making. We take these explorations and ideas to create playful projects and experiences that bring people together.

Our work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world, most recently at the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai, the Artscape in Cape Town and the Sydney Opera House. Our work is in the permanent collection of the NGV, The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney and the City of Melbourne Collection.

We have also worked with clients including Adidas Originals, NIKE, Apple, Samsung, IKEA and Visa. In 2014 we won an ARIA award for best album artwork and in 2016 we were inducted as members of Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). We are current members of NEW INC, the art and technology incubator run by the New Museum.
