Mimosa Fever Dreams posits a fresh perspective on how we might experience exhibitions, and, like its name suggests, reflect upon the changing expectations of post-Covid-19 tangible experience. The studio prompted students to engage across the digital-interstitial-physical space (or DIP as we called it): the comfort and accessibility of digital, the tactility of tangible interfaces, and anywhere in between. Against a Covid-19-inspired backdrop of FOMO, FOGO and JOMO, students experienced working with augmented reality (AR) prototyping and digital wire-framing tools to better understand digital media design, prefacing physicality as a key aspect of the visitor experience.
This studio is part of a RMIT – National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) partnered project that investigates digital-rich approaches to the delivery of events, exhibitions and programs for Melbourne Design Week 2021.
The best way to ‘walk’ around in the 3D gallery is to use the W/A/S/D keys, or the arrow keys on your keyboard.
Click and drag in the 3D scene to look around.
You can also activate fullscreen mode in the 3D Gallery for a more immersive experience. Click on the upper-right hand menu, and select Enter Fullscreen.
To view an artwork up close, click on it. Some artworks are videos, which will start playing when you click on them, or when you get close to them.
While you are in artwork viewing mode, you can also find out more about it by clicking on the Information icon on the upper right corner of the gallery screen.
It looks like you are visiting the MDIT ne/x/t Exhibition from a device that won’t give you the optimum browsing experience.
For best results, please visit us from a laptop/desktop machine or a tablet (and allow window popups when prompted!) – we promise it will be worth the effort!
No MDIT exhibition – digital or otherwise – happens without a collection of great work from students, supported and curated by their tutors. Thanks to EVERYONE for the help contributed!
A special mention goes to Illiyanna Ibrahim, our information wrangler, content uploader and design front-liner, for your hard work fine-tuning and assembling the nearly 500 articles of media, text and supporting content.
Thanks Hartwig Bentele & Kunstmatrix for your technical support.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the following students who volunteered (despite their busy coursework) what precious time they had to help sort out the finer details of digital media work:
Guglielmo ‘Bosco-sorry-my-laptop-died’ Bartilomo
3D lightbake tester
Sowmiya ‘yes-Chuan-click-UV-unwrap’ Selvakumaraswamy
Suresh ‘should-we-unit-test?’ Saicharan Maniganahalli
Diego ‘nicest tester alive award’ Garetto Morande
Thanks for visiting and fare thee well – across the digital ether. Be well; be kind.
