Sowinski/Cullen and Associates
Sowinski/Cullen and Associates was formed in 2016 with a focus on lighting and spatial designs, and artworks for theatre productions, public spaces and architectural projects. In a career spanning two and a half decades, Rob Sowinski has collaborated with a wide range of companies on national and international projects including major lighting and art installations, precinct studies and large-scale productions. Now based in Melbourne, he operates as a resident designer, educator and creator.
Joining Sowinski is Bryn Cullen, a lighting and spatial designer specialising in dramatic theatre, opera, and experimental work and drawing on a background of physical performance. Sowinski/Cullen and Associates are interested in challenging traditional notions of light and how objects are perceived and interacted with in public and private spaces. A strong background and focus on theatre feeds this exploration, which also draws heavily on built forms, heritage and human interaction.
