Transformative Technologies + Data Poetics

25th February, 2019 - 22nd March, 2019
UTS Library Haymarket

As part of Sydney Design Festival 2019, UTS Library in collaboration with the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building (DAB) presented an exhibition that showcased the outcomes and speculations of the Transformative Technologies + Data Poetics (TT+DP) group. The TT+DP research group are a multi-disciplinary collection of designers and makers operating in and around emerging technologies in architecture, visual communication design, and data visualisation.

Through their explorations in visualisations of complex data, mixed reality and automation within the building and construction industry, this exhibition illustrates how new technologies are enabling more inclusive design and review processes within various fields. Over the past months, TT+DP have developed two distinct projects that comparably use new technologies to assist complex ideas in becoming more accessible: Adrift, a data visualisation project that uses citizen science to collect data to map ocean microbes and Structural Hybrid, a real-world testing of robotic fabrication machinery to manufacture a complex structure.
