Leon Cmielewski is an artist, animator and designer and has worked in both print design and broadcast television design. Over the past decade along with collaborator Josephine Starrs he has produced a range of video and interactive media projects which often uses play as a strategy for engaging with the social and political contradictions inherent in contemporary life. Some of their media artworks including Incompatible Elements, Waterways and sms_origins are situated at the juncture of cinema, information visualisation, and mapping, playing off the tensions between the large and small screen, and between information and sublime landscape.
He is a lecturer at the School of Communication Arts at the University of Western Sydney
