The Cube is offering an Artist-in-residence opportunity to develop an innovative project on one of the world’s largest interactive display spaces. Located within QUT’s Science and Engineering Centre, The Cube is a hub for scientific and digital exploration, and is one of the world’s largest interactive learning and display spaces.
Applicants are invited to submit project proposals for an innovative digital project and to utilise The Cube’s technology and opportunities as a dedicated large-scale interactive environment.
Working from The Cube studio, this immersive program aims to provide a unique professional development opportunity for the resident to design, develop and deliver a new interactive work.
Now in its sixth year, The Cube’s Artist-in-residence program aims to generate transdisciplinary dialogue between creative practice, technology, and science.
In 2017, multimedia artist Georgie Pinn developed an immersive, interactive project that used facial tracking technology, animation and sound to explore notions of empathy and shared identity. The installation was a virtual mirror, investigating myopic self-obsessed tendencies and used a new emotive language that connected a diverse group of people. In just two years Echo has toured to highly acclaimed festivals such as Pause Festival (Melbourne) to the International Symposium of Electronic Art (South Africa), to the Drive Gallery in Berlin and even Ars Electronica (Austria) where the work received honorary mention.
