Dion Star MA is an artist and designer whose primary focus is on exploring potential critical and creative ‘ways of operating’ through the habitual use of constraints as a conceptual framework.

His studio practice has centred around collaboration, opening up opportunities to work with film directors, sound designers, writers, poets & other artists. His work has been exhibited at (amongst others) The Royal College of Art (London, UK), Newlyn Art Gallery and The Eden Project (Cornwall, UK).

He has delivered conference papers, lectures and workshops at (amongst others) Design School Kolding, Cumulus Conference; WERKWOCHE: International Design Week at University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, Faculty of Design; Society for Artistic Research (SAR) / University Of The Arts Helsinki: International Conference on Artistic Research.

Dion has been a Senior Lecturer at Falmouth University on the BA(Hons) Graphic Design course since 2011, working to explore connections between people and process to help enable both new ‘works’ and new models of ‘making’. He continues his own studio practice and forms one third of ‘Various Writings’, with Maria Christoforidou and Lizzie Ridout,  an arts-based research platform and programme of exhibition/publishing projects investigating acts of writing.
