Creative Idea or Created Technology:  What Came First?

Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia, Level 6 Terrace Entrance (Circular Quay West Side), Sydney NSW 2000

Forward-thinking creatives are making the most of emerging technologies; creating captivating experiences and stories, inventing new ways as they go.

Clever Buoy: a world-first smart ocean buoy calibrated to detect sharks, developed by the Optus Network and MC Saatchi. 

Another is the ‘Most Powerful Arm Ever Invented’, created to physically sign a petition on behalf of DMD children who’ve lost the ability to write.  

But how do these breakthroughs happen?

Was it the creative idea that pushed technological boundaries, or did access to emerging technologies inspire the creative idea?

Does what come first really matter? Is one way better than the other? And if so, discover how and why.

We have invited several very different speakers, pioneers in their own right, to give their point of view, and share examples of the role of technology in their creative inspiration, process and work.


This event is presented by AGDA.
