Melbourne CBD the central character in new playable, public art experience
Melbourne will come to life like never before in a new playable, public art experience unveiled today.
As Melbourne continues its post-pandemic reactivation and with thousands of children visiting during the school holidays, the CBD is the central character in the self-guided immersive theatre experience, 64 Ways of Being.
The innovative project combines games, art and augmented reality. Players follow characters, activate architecture, discover hidden worlds, interact with strangers and talk with trees and rivers.
It’s the creation of RMIT mixed reality artist Dr Troy Innocent, live arts collective one step at a time like this, and game developer Millipede (AKQA Group) and funded by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. It is the latest creative project from RMIT, known globally as a leading university of design and technology.
The 64 Ways of Being experience is a three-part walking trail and draws on Melbourne’s multicultural communities and Indigenous knowledge.
