Playing Ground Past Event
To design landscapes we need to understand how they may change across scales and across time. This exhibition invites people of all ages to imagine these changes by playing with a model landscape comprised of sand and an augmented reality display.
As participants sculpt the sand, and the landform it represents, the visualisation overlay reveals how water would flow and plants would grow across the hypothetical landscape. A number of prompts are provided that ask participants to discover and examine the relationships between topography, ecology, hydrology, and sustainability.
This event runs on a drop-in basis during the listed session times and participants are welcome to stay for as long, or as short, as they like. However, a booking is required enter The Capitol and access this exhibition. These bookings are free.
