About me

Carr has worked across a broad spectrum of the performing arts, bringing vitality to global ecological and social themes. Her eco-design remit is to repurpose objects, use surplus materials and commit to a closed-loop design process, in which all components are considered in a cyclical manner, with their afterlife as important as their current use. Embracing chance along the way, her work often distils into designs that move between art installations and immersive environments. Her work has been included in the UK representation of the World Stage Design Exhibition, in the Aesthetica Art Prize anthology, and in the ‘Designers Lead’ section of the Society of British Theatre Designers (SBTD) 2019 exhibition at the V&A. Andrea is also studying Process Orientated Psychology. She works from her Peckham Studio, her ‘dream palace’, where she goes to ground her ideas, make models and mock ups, and as a space for collaboration.
