About the scholarship
This PhD, concerned with the creation of interactive art works and funded through an ARC/QUT scholarship, is part of a larger ongoing project: ARC Discovery DP210100589 "Amplifying the Impact of the Royal Commission into Aged Care" (CI's Miller, Holland-Blatt, Thompson Seevinck, Gott.)
Find out more about the project: Designing interactive art experiences that engage people with the issues around aged care.
This practice-based PhD project asks how interactive art might engage people with the issues around aged care in Australia.
The PhD contributes critically to this project, as the interactive art component will engage the public with these difficult issues. The art installation and its creation are means to give 'voice' to a vulnerable and often silent demographic.
Situated within the nascent area of interactive art, this project will contribute:
- new understandings and research into the form and design of interactive art works
- new insights into audience experience of interactive art.
