MeshMinds 2.0: ArtxTechforGood offers more than 20 immersive multi-sensory experiences by a new generation of artists ready to tackle the toughest challenges facing our planet. From stepping through a virtual portal to help clean a polluted ocean, or imagining the future of our cities through the lens of augmented reality, take part in this ongoing conversation on sustainability through the lens of technology and the arts.
This year's programme includes a plastic recycling workshop, a session on Tagtool, conversations on climate change, and sessions that are aimed at helping exhibition-goers develop and communicate their ideas. This year, MeshMinds 2.0: ArtxTechforGood artists shine their spotlight on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Singapore’s declaration of 2019 as the Year Towards Zero Waste, and burgeoning global campaigns such as #beatplasticpollution in their works.
Organised by The MeshMinds Foundation, the second edition of this interactive and technologically-rich exhibition showcases the works of Singaporean artists who have participated in the Foundation’s artist incubation programme, Please Insert Human, working in conjunction with the Foundation’s media studio arm, MeshMinds.
Ms Kay Poh Gek Vasey, founder of The MeshMinds Foundation, said: “With the support of leading technology partners and ArtScience Museum, our talented artists have had the opportunity to harness emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), 3D modelling and printing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). The experience not only enhances their art-making, but also creates impactful and immersive artworks that invite people to interact with, and hopefully be inspired and empowered to engage in the global sustainability conversation and to effect positive change.”
Featured in this exhibition are works by Asia VR/AR Impact Lab, who is the Singapore-based not-for-profit research arm of The MeshMinds Foundation. They are a network of leading academic researchers, content creators, technology companies, impact investors, science museums, and cultural institutions based in Asia focused on measuring the impact of Asia VR/AR content. Their mission is to understand the engagement, empathetic response and behavioural changes linked to VR/AR experiences focused on social, ecological, and economic challenges.
