Doppelgängers and Zombies - Decorative Arts in the Digital Age
Doppelgängers and Zombies - Decorative Arts in the Digital Age | 1 July - 23 July 2022
Doppelgängers and Zombies is a critical and artistic, experimental and provocative exploration of what it means to engage with decorative arts in our digital age. This exhibition presents new creations based on digital copies of some of the master pieces from David Roche’s collection of 17th and 18th century decorative arts objects. Newly interpreted, they are modified and translated into objects of the 21st century using digital crafting techniques and advanced fabrication technologies.
The creative research by the Research Fellow Dr Rochus Hinkel, from the Melbourne School of Design and Co-Director of the Advanced Digital Design and Fabrication Research Hub at The University of Melbourne is complemented by tours through the exhibition, a reflection and presentation on the processes and outcomes of the Fellowship. A limited edition of 21st century decorative arts objects will be available via a public auction offering physical and digital collectables, including NFTs.
Doppelgängers and Zombies is the second exhibition during the two-year-long investigation of The SIDA, UNISA and David Roche Foundation’s Research Fellowship in Interior Design and Decoration.
