Power of 1

"The various displays, in particular the 'voice' room, posed many questions in my mind, which is always a positive indicator. It is good to think about how we contribute to social and political views in a rapidly changing environment. No clear answer! But at least it has me thinking..."

Power of 1 preview

Power of 1: Does your voice count? is an ambitious cross platform project that celebrates the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of individual voice. It includes a physical exhibition, art installations, a national baseline survey, live online interactive activities, tangible data visualisation, social media and good old fashioned debate to create a unique interactive experience.

Visitors to the exhibition are invited to join a conversation around improving Australian democratic processes in different ways appropriate to each generation. In the Builders Room, hand write a note that is then scanned by a hidden camera. In the Boomers Room, record an audio voxpop. In the Gen X Room, "tweet" from a Commodore 64 computer from the 80s. In the Gen Y room, record a video selfie from one of 12 hanging iPods.

The exhibition is based on the results of a national baseline survey conducted by the Museum in conjunction with the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis at the University of Canberra, that canvasses the four generations: Builders, Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y for their views on democracy and our political system.

The exhibition visualises the responses from the baseline survey in a 3D column installation that highlights how different generations respond to similar questions about democracy, and their level of satisfaction with the political system. Visitors to Power of 1 can participate by answering questions through video, audio and text – adding to the content of the exhibition.

Power of 1: Does your voice count? is currently on display at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, and is open daily from 9am-­‐5pm. The online survey can be taken at http://powerof1voice.moadoph.gov.au/

MR Tiltbrush experience for UTS Open Day

UTS Insearch commissioned us to create a Mixed Reality (MR) experience for UTS Open Day where students could get creative in Google Tiltbrush. Around 70 people got to play in VR and their handiwork was shown live on the big screen.
