SYMMETRY SPEAKER #3: DEENA LYNCH aka Spectator Jonze

Spectator Jonze is the moniker of the artist within Deena Lynch. Jonze was born in Yokohama, Japan to a Taiwanese mother and Australian father. She migrated to Australia under interesting and less than certain circumstances when she was 6 years old.

She grew in many different homes and situations – not quite an orphan, not quite belonging anywhere. This put her in touch with a myriad of people and demons coming from disjointed backgrounds themselves or from a position of power. Being in contact with emotional, physical and sexual abuse pushed her into the safety of PTSD where suppression, depression and dissociation became a survival tactic. Having always carried a creative mind, it was only natural for Jonze to use art and music as an outlet of expression. 2017 was the year she finally came to an age and understanding to tackle her mental health, quirks and trauma. Art became a medium she utilised as a cathartic vessel to uncover the secrets she had even hidden from herself.

2018 that’s a wrap! Here’s to honoring tradition but living untraditional creative lives. Moments captured by Savannah van der Niet #cmbne #cmtradition

Join us for the very last CreativeMornings/Brisbane of 2018! Traditions are sacred because they cultivate consistency and a sense of belonging. It’s the bread and butter for fostering connection and community. This month speaking on the theme of #cmtradition is Frankie Ratford of The Design Kids.

TDK (The Design Kids) is a global online resource and local offline communities around the world, for thousands of student and graduate graphic designers. They aim to educate, inspire and connect students to the design industry. TDK Director, Frankie has just completed her epic 6-year tour, sharing the TDK model with students from cities all around the globe through monthly #tdktuesday meetups.

Frankie’s name has been photoshopped into ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego’ more than once. She’s fascinated with the intersection between design, travel, and business, and likes to do five things at the same time. She’s lived in 13 cities, in 25+ houses and is currently road tripping around the world for six years, right now in Asia and South America building the TDK empire (lols). She started The Design Kids in 2009 and launched with a market stall in the front yard with some mates and a DJ. In 2018, she launched a Design Studio Coaching arm to her company. She is a sunny Sagittarius who splits her time between her [60’s shack in rural Tasmania] and catching planes to far away (warmer) places.

Our place of meeting this month is The Refinery — A beautifully renovated warehouse space in Newstead. Register for this event on Monday, December 10 at 11.00am. #cmtradition
