Creative digital intelligence is reshaping not only our cultural, social, and economic spheres but also the natural environment. This evolution compels us to re-examine the foundations of our interaction with both the natural and digital realms, particularly concerning our use of natural resources.

This exhibition showcases 360-degree video, immersive digital, and creative endeavours by academics, designers and artists tackling the pressing ecological challenges and ethical considerations embedded within our increasingly digital lives. The designers integrate ecosophy, the philosophy of ecological harmony and balance, as a guiding principle, to emphasise sustainable and ethical use of technology as infrastructures and interfaces toward design practices. Complemented by a suite of public programs and events, this exhibition is a collaborative production between Deakin’s Critical Digital Infrastructures and Interfaces (CDII) research group and Deakin Library.

The exhibition features the explorative works of Higher Degree by Research students alongside those engaged in the Media Ecologies unit. These emerging talents, on the cusp of professional life as media and communications experts, and creative practitioners, have been developed under the mentorship of professional artists and Deakin University’s own faculty. This exhibition underscores Deakin’s commitment to fostering practitioner-research excellence.

Exhibition on display until 13 June (Phoenix Gallery) and 21 July (Library Exhibition Space).
