Professor Dennis Del Favero
Administering Organisation: The University of New South Wales
Fellowship project summary:
FL200100004: The Project aims to transform the traditional artistic paradigm of visualisation as the human-centred depiction of predictable events by harnessing revolutionary advances in art and technology. Through application of an advanced artistic framework, this Laureate project expects to demonstrate how globally distributed users and digital systems can collaboratively depict unpredictable scenarios such as wildfire landscapes in real time and at 1:1 scale. Anticipated outcomes include a cutting-edge platform that provides life-like experiences to understand their spatial dynamics and the increasing uncertainties they pose, for dissemination through creative industry applications to optimise engagement and impact.
