The VR project "Thirst" utilises VR technology, stylised 3D animated graphics and an infrasonic score to draw attention to the activity of flora and fauna within the soil. It is hoped that the embodied sensory experiences that immersion in such VR experiences afford will contribute to a broader cultivation of environmental sensitivity and wise management of precious natural resources such as water.
Thirst continues a series of Design and Digital Media Research Seminars convened by the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research in 2018. The seminar will be presented on Southbank campus in S07_4.03. Participants can join the seminar by videolink on Nathan Campus at N78_4.26.
