Curiocity Brisbane, is a series of public immersive, interactive and multi-sensory experiences installed across Brisbane city. For 20 days one-of-a-kind installations, pop-ups and interactive spaces crafted by local and international artists, and technicians will be on display. Each installment celebrates art and science, with visitors of all ages playing among a gallery of interactive creations, augmented reality (AR) spaces and music pop-ups.
Inaugural Guest Director of Curiocity Brisbane and Brisbane Powerhouse Artistic Director Kris Stewart said Curiocity Brisbane brings an undeniable ‘wow’ factor to Brisbane’s parks, terraces and riverbanks.
“From a pedal-powered aerial screw and giant musical waveform, to giant astronauts scaling buildings and a moving sculpture with 2500 reflective fish, there’s a Curiocity to challenge and spark everyone’s imagination,” said Kris.
One of the festival’s central contributors, Tori-Jay Mordey, is a local contemporary artist based in Brisbane. She worked alongside artists at post-production studio, Cutting Edge to offer up AR art installations. The pieces spark the imagination and encourage visitors to embrace their curiosity about science and innovation.
Tori-Jay explains, “The fact that this event encourages the inner child-like wonder we all have, and also that this is a great platform for artists to really showcase their work to the general public is great. It develops a nice interactive relationship between artists and the city.”
