Studio Lucy Sanderson is a multidisciplinary spatial design and research practice with a provision to bring equality to environments. Conceiving creative and research projects from initial concept through to production, campaigning for the future of change.
Our work manifests materiality, moving image, sculpture, exhibition design, set design, spatial design and photography in response to notions of gender politics, equality and behavioural conditioning constructed through the psyche. This process of working is deeply embedded in the post-digital discourse, curiously observing how the education of tactility through materials can evoke emotion.
Sanderson coined the term, "(every)body deserves equality", 2016 - referring to the 'body' as a glocalised landscape with the premise to perform in society without stereotyping. This concept was initially related to acknowledging the lack of people of colour within the feminist discourse, '(every)body' is the groundwork ideology hoping to redefine the notion of sexuality, nationality, age, culture, cultural capital, recognition of white privilege and gender through the means of equality.
