Cape Town, South Africa
As a photographer-designer-vj-embroiderer, Danielle Clough has lived a life forever bound to the hyphen. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Clough completed her studies in art direction and graphic design at The Red and Yellow School before embarking on a career in visual art, digital design and thing-making.
Her combined interest in visual art, music and the South African street culture scene led to an experimental stint turned niche gig creating visuals for live music events. When she is not VJing (which is not what you think), Cough is doing digital design work for local companies; wrapped in a mess of threads embroidering anything from vintage rackets to shoes; lending her voice to local radio shows (Assembly Radio, Bush Radio); creating custom book covers (Modjaji Books); and working as a contributing photographer for various local and international media.
