jason harding is an academic, artist and designer based in Australia. Also a former sports-scientist who worked for the Australian Institute of Sport and the Olympic Winter Institute for almost a decade. He creates – and has the capability to create – all sorts of stuff and is captivated by the way different methods and mediums influence each other. Will often fuse his own writing, spoken word, photography, art and design into his courses, creative work and briefs.
The first note on graphic design he ever wrote down was, “this is the art of thinking”. And in an attempt to recapture the same sense of wonder and magic and soul in higher education began fusing poetry, art and design with science, creative non-fiction and philosophy into his work. His courses on technology, innovation and human experience generate comments such as, “this was like a slap in the face and one I desperately needed”, “woke me up”, “flicked a switch”, “gave us courage”, “was unlike anything I have ever taken at university” and “will stay with us for life”.
Dreams of one day creating something beautiful. Something that truly has weight. Yeah that quintessential and “unattainable dent”. So will happily settle for being permitted the luxury and liberty of chasing it anyway. And going completely mad in the process. You might walk past him on the street one day. And never know. You may also end up working with on something cool. Some sort of platform to connect. Intimately. With thousands of people. And the opportunity to make positive lasting change.
