The Exchange at Knowledge Market presents Sensor[ed], an exhibition uncovering possibilities for digital infrastructures in Melbourne.
Cities around the world are building digital infrastructures to measure the urban landscape through sensors. Pedestrian count, air quality, light and sound levels are just a few examples of this sensor-collected data.
How can we bring quantified data out of the digital realm and into everyday experience?
What are the possibilities to use data in creative and socially driven ways?
What are the challenges and opportunities that these technologies afford to the design of the public realm and hence for enabling (re)formulations of the social?
The Exchange at Knowledge Market unpacks these questions in Sensor[ed], an exhibition uncovering possibilities for digital infrastructures in Melbourne.
Developed by RMIT Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Design Innovation and Technology students, Sensor[ed] will showcase a wide range of design proposals for Melbourne, from large urban scale infrastructure to smaller personal interactive devices.
Join us for the opening on the 10th of May at 6pm, engage with the interactive works and join our discussion around digital interaction in the urban realm.
This event is part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, 7 – 13 May 2018, proudly presented by the City of Melbourne.
Melbourne Knowledge Week is a week-long festival that melds, art, technology, business and science to explore and co-create our future city. Over 80 events have been designed to inspire curious minds to collide and collaborate to bring future-focused ideas to life.
Throw yourself into a week full of innovation and creativity where you'll hear from international industry leaders, test cutting-edge technology, taste future food and help to solve Melbourne's future challenges.
The Exchange at Knowledge Market is an innovative research project space curated by RMIT University in collaboration with Lendlease. Embedded within the Victoria Harbour precinct of Docklands, researchers are exploring the concept of community and new ways of understanding the shared urban environment through a series of workshops, exhibitions, forums and community events.
This project is supported by a capability development fund grant from the RMIT Design and Creative Practice ECP.
