Coordinated by the School of Architecture and Built Environment at Deakin University in collaboration with the City of Greater Geelong, the Geelong Gallery and Geelong Regional Libraries, Vital Signs consists of a three-part exhibition that contributes to ongoing discussions on Geelong’s future. At the Geelong Gallery alongside Eugene Von Guerard’s painting View of Geelong (1856), Possible Futures are composed with drawings, sketches and models from students of Deakin University’s Urbanheart Surgery design studio. At the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre, an interactive experience entitled Plausible Futures shows a range of key projects through spatial modelling, mixed reality and responsive environments developed within the MInD Lab and The Liveable + Smart Cities Research Lab at Deakin. Also at the Library is the realtime media installation Alternative Futures: working with The City of Greater Geelong’s comprehensive 3D digital data model, the installation will present a series of ‘What If?’ scenarios based on the ‘Clever and Creative Future’ vision as the city moves beyond 2050.
