CreateX

CreateX brought creativity, technology and community together on 28 August at QUT Creative Industries.

The all-ages free event at QUT’s Kelvin Grove campus featured the latest immersive, interactive, 3-Dimensional experiences.

CreateX celebrated the opening of the new Precinct Stage Two, an $88 million investment by QUT into the Creative Industries Faculty. Performances, installations, talks and workshops covering the arts, media and design were open to the public to enjoy.

Performances, workshops and installations on the day included:

  • Museum of Colliding Dimensions: a world-first, room-sized augmented reality experience to make you feel like you’re inside a video game.
  • Garden of Minuscule Delights: interactive dance performance involving robots, humans and the public, where the performers react and respond to the public’s presence in the room.
  • Shifting Lenses – a live duet between a dancer and a computer.
  • Mudskipping – a dance of the mangroves combining 3D film, dance and music to evoke an eccentric reimagining on the lives of mudskipper.
  • The Copernicus Challenge – real life augmented reality adventure game.

Check out the CreateX Facebook gallery to see all the events that happened throughout the day.
