EXHIBITION TIMES: 12–22 MAR, 10AM–5PM DAILY
Making a prototype provides a means to experiment, design and evaluate an idea, or a concept. They also challenge our current views of our world and the ideal of our future society. While most prototypes are physical artefacts, they can also be virtual and come in a multitude of media that challenge our senses: in the form of sound, touch, smell, sight and taste.
Future Prototyping gathers innovative virtual, immersive and physical prototypes that are emerging across the field of art, design, food, engineering, and architecture in Australia and New Zealand. These prototypes demonstrate how making is changing in the 21st century through advanced technology, novel techniques and revitalisation of traditional craftsmanship, and provide us with glimpses of the future, one that is yet to come.
This exhibition is curated by Paul Loh (Melbourne School of Design), Mond Qu (United Make) and David Leggett (LLDS/Power to Make), and supported by the Melbourne School of Design.
