Virtual X

Museums inspire us through interpretation, empathy and innovative design.

Imagine using design and art practices in an exciting virtual exhibition. Through addressing a design brief pitched by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) students will conceptualise, design and create a virtual exhibit to be included in a public exhibition.

Students will develop art practice using 3D modelling, prototyping and VR design as well as experience project submission processes managed through ACMI. For those students interested in digital design for VCE, this program provides insight into what could be incorporated in a VCE folio.
