Anna Rose Kerr
I’m a renaissance man; providing creative consultancy, exhibiting as a conceptual artist and contributing to decentralised communities.
Working with the world’s best loved brands and award-winning agency teams I’ve delivered a 3D-printed whisky glass that works in zero gravity, a museum to destigmistize period pain and a mixed reality bar where flavours can be “tasted” with all five senses. A lot of my most recognised work uses technology to imagine a future with better vibes.
Exhibiting as a contemporary artist, I explore the boundaries between bodies and machines. I’ve also challenged pervasive-colonial thinking through a 52-episode podcast about immigrants from the Commonwealth to the UK, and a series of browser based works about my own Pākeha ancestry.

Bodyform Pain Project
Creative Director at Ketchum
Half of people worldwide believe period pain should be endured in silence, a taboo we knew needed to be broken. As part of the Pain Project we created a virtual 'Pain Museum' for endometriosis sufferers to be loud about their symptoms so others can find a diagnosis.
Every Lesson Shapes a Life
Creative Director at Havas
A new brand identity and a nationwide campaign raising the status of teachers for the Department for Education. I was a Creative Director across four Havas-owned agencies, and also directed the radio and social films which feature adults reflecting on the impact their teachers had.
A Mixed-Reality Bar
Creative Director at Havas
At Havas / Cake we created a bar for Rekorderlig, where cocktails come to life and midsummer crowns were made from augmented fruit. Visitors stepped through a portal to enter "Rekorder-land", using Magic Leap headsets to explore a hyperreal world of flavours.
Volunteer at East London Waterworks Park
This is an ambitious community-led project to buy the underused concrete depot at Lea Bridge and unearth the original Victorian filter beds; to create natural swimming ponds and a biodiverse park. I have volunteered with the project since 2022.
When local theatre Castle Cinema offered to play an ad for us before each of their films, Amy Shields (an art director also volunteering with the project) and I put together the following film over 48 hours.
