Meet our Crew! Luke Dune Detheridge

Luke Dune Detheridge

Design Lead

Throughout my experiences at Emily Carr University and indeed following, I have honed a process that relates a multi-artist vision, to a finished production and display. In favour of team dynamics, the unity of a common vision, I orientate myself to be effective and efficient yet flexibility in order to meet unforeseen challenges.

I have self-direction and employ solution-based processes to effectively approach conceptual design in large or small scale applications. I utilize time management and team building strategies, such as open learning and divergent thinking.

This allows me to effectively manage a multi-stage production with precision and effective leadership. In addition, I have gained extensive knowledge of safety regulations regarding the safe operation of a wide variety of hand and power tools. In combination, I am well versed in the application of a wide variety of materials to a simple or unprecedented capacity.

What Embrace means to me is the realization of a crazy idea we were kicking around over breakfast Margaritas at Burning Man 2012. I’m just glad this idea won out over “scary flaming Teddy Bear art car”

I loved the Embrace idea because…well isn’t that what life is about?

Embracing all the things that life throws at me. Embracing ideas, concepts, people, places and living things. Furry, feathery and fishy things. Embracing earth. Embracing chances & changes. Embracing new things that scare me or make me nervous. Embracing love. I’m excited about being involved with the Embrace group.

It feels good to be involved with this community of caring crazy creative people.

Peace

After years of searching Embrace has given me a non-judgmental and supportive tribe where I feel like I am valued for my uniqueness and talents. The great thing about this group is it doesn’t feel like we are really working because everyone is having so much fun!
