Andrew Stiff is a Lecturer at RMIT University Vietnam, teaching within the School of Communication & Design. He specialises in experimental design and experimental moving image. He studied painting at Chelsea School of Art [now part of the University of the Arts London], and ‘Information Systems and technology’ for his masters degree at the University of Liverpool. After working with the experimental digital design collective D-Fuse, he started his academic career running a masters degree in Digital Art, at Camberwell college of Arts, University of the Arts London. He is currently undertaking a practice based PhD at RMIT University, in the School of Graduate Research: Architecture and Design. The research is titled: ‘Intimate Spaces: An archive of creative observation’. Andrew’s design practice investigates the process of collecting, archiving and re-presenting unique urban spaces that demonstrate density and complexity. The moving image sequences that emerge from this practice form a catalyst for debate upon the cultural and social value of the spaces, in particular how they can inform the debate on urban planning and design. His work has been shown internationally from the US, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and in Southeast Asia, as well as a number of venues in Europe.
