Melbourne is often cited as one of the world’s most liveable cities in which 4.25 million people live, work and play. This project asks how liveability might continue considering emergent pressures around population, water, energy, transport, health and urban sprawl. ZOOM comprises a data field – a window into the ‘systems of systems’ that comprise the modern city – presented as an evolving graphic visualization by Greg More. The project is augmented by contributions by audiences via a survey, giving visitors the chance to design ‘future Melbourne’. Curated by Ewan McEoin (Studio Propeller) and featuring: data visualisation by Greg More (OOM Creative); graphic design by Matthew Angel; exhibition design by Design Office; sound installation by Marco Cher-Gibard; data research by Serryn Eagleson / EDG Research; and digital survey design by Policy Booth.
