Innovators - Australian Design & Innovation is an award winning exhibition that celebrates design and innovation from Australia. The exhibition features sixteen digital archives with iconic Australian innovations like wifi, the bionic ear, polymer notes, and innovators including Marc Newson, Susan Cohn, Michael Simcoe and Denton Corker Marshall.
The theme of innovation is carried into the exhibition design through cloud based content using augmented reality. Curator Ian Wong collaborated with collegue Dr Indae Hwang and traditional Chinese artist Minghua Zhang, merging ancient Chinese craft with the latest lightweight metal 3D printing technology from the CSIRO. The resulting 3D printed titanium Chinese seals (yang) are featured as the “trigger” for this sustainable and innovative interactive exhibition.
Commissioned by the Australian Embassy in Beijing as part of the Australia@BJDW program the exhibition was awarded the most innovative exhibition award at Beijing Design Week 2016. Ian Wong is the China representative for the Design Institute of Australia and Program Director for the Master of Industrial Design program at the Southeast University - Monash University Joint Graduate School (Suzhou).
Join the curator Ian Wong at this DIAlogue PM event as he discusses Australian design and innovation and provides insights into our increasing engagement in China.
