Innocent Plays… Hard
Last October, artist, game designer and senior lecturer in the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design at Swinburne University, Dr Troy Innocent was named this year's Knowledge Fellow for his work exploring new technologies as a way of using game play to activate city spaces.
Dr Innocent's latest work, Wayfinder Live 2017, is a location based augmented reality game that encouraged players to scan codes hidden in Melbourne's laneways in a digital street game to unlock the story of the mysterious fictitious micro nation Ludea.
Knowledge City portfolio chair, Councillor Dr Jackie Watts, said Dr Innocent's work helped people explore, connect and rediscover Melbourne in a new way." Dr Innocent is a splendid example of the great techno creative talent at work within our city and I congratulate him on receiving the 2017 City of Melbourne Knowledge Fellowship," Dr Watts said. Through the fellowship program, Dr Innocent will travel to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Aarhus, Bristol, Plymouth and London to develop knowledge and skills in the strategic design and creative development of 'playable cities'. He will also undertake a residency at Library at the Dock, delivering industry and community activities based on experience and learnings from his overseas travels.
Innocent is currently finalising Placemaker in Let’s Play.
Let’s Play: The art of our time embarks on a quest with some of the most playful and inquisitive artists from Australia and around the globe to explore some of life’s big questions.

Flinders University Gallery, Adelaide

New Alchemists comprises a diverse suite of works by Australian and International artists exploring ideas of futuristic biologies and post-human engagements within the broad intersections of art and science.
Paralleling a view of the artist as contemporary alchemist, the selected works channel experiences beyond our accessible human and non-human worlds. Through play, ambiguity and provocation, the works engage in narratives that collapse our sense of familiarity and embodied otherness with the world around us.
