Combining a pop-up exhibition/showcase with a panel discussion, The Life CodeÂ examines, through the lens of AR/VR projects, how Indigenous knowledge systems (which find perfection from the elements) can lead to more engaging and inclusive technologies, whilst also underscoring the importance of Indigenous science in AI.
Works included in the exhibition will feature a number of VR projects including works that INDIGI LAB have worked on as seen on SBSâ€™s National Indigenous Television (NITV), including the Rewired program. Other feature works include a VR project by Mikeala Jade from Indigital that examines the ethics surrounding Indigenous digital Space. Also featured will be the VR work from Brett Leavy, a game developer from Virtual Songlines. The software developed by Virtual Songlines, acts as a toolkit for documenting, and interacting with, authentic cultural heritage stories of Australiaâ€™s First Nations. Utlising 3D animation technology, the Monash Country Lines Archive, will feature video works that are helping to protect Indigenous languages and knowledge into the future.
