EVENT: Our Future Air (Thurs 12 May)
Imagining how new devices and technology could protect the atmospheres in our homes
In this hands-on exploration of emerging technologies, participants will work in groups to use recycled materials and craft supplies to speculate and build possible devices to keep the air in our homes healthy and comfortable. When done, each group will share their creation with the audience and enact a marketing pitch to camera.
After the workshop, the Monash University Emerging Technologies Research Lab will share findings from the Digital Energy Futures research project. Attendees will learn about new digital technologies, like smart tech air purifiers, and understand their wider impact on future household electricity demand.
*The event will be filmed, and the footage/clips from the event will contribute to a documentary film in development on this topic.
Thu 12 May | 5.30pm – 7.30pm
