AkE is a multidisciplinary research, teaching and learning laboratory using motion simulators, 4D cinema seating, light and VR to explore relationships between sound, movement and vision.AkE (pronounced "ache") has a team of academics, composers, programmers and designers exploring questions of perception and cognition in relation to multisensory experience. Through an open-ended approach to creative practice, AkE facilitates new work in art and design. Many of the aesthetic explorations undertaken in turn, generate research questions and opportunities that are then explored within an applied context. The principles behind an audiokinetic jukebox designed for White Night and the NGV, for example, have since been applied to research into movement and memory in Alzheimers sufferers; vibrotactile experiments for Einsturzende Neubauten led to collaborations with Engineering on brainwave entrainment for drowsy drivers.
