Introduction
The link between art and technology is not always clear; there are many varied career paths available for creatives in technology centric fields and a diverse range of creative industries that use advanced technologies to achieve outcomes. Students are often unaware these careers exist, and what skill sets and education are required to excel in the fields. This program hopes to start addressing that.

Program Summary
Students will use technologies to achieve creative design outcomes. They will explore Virtual Reality as a 3D sculpting studio, microscopes as an instrument to capture enhanced images, laser cutting to assist in the creation of technology trees utilising recycled technology components and learn about sublimated printing. Taking part in the program will expose students to a wide range of processes that combine art and technology and that will have them experimenting with a range of artistic mediums.
Taking part in this program, students will collaboratively:

  • Create sculptures in a virtual environment and display these in mixed reality
  • Construct a ‘tree’ from laser cut materials and recycles technology
  • Create microscopic artworks using different materials and substances
  • Digitally manipulate images to create a collage
