An RMIT Design Laboratory exploring the impact of global warming in the Yarra Valley.
Charles Anderson, (RMIT University/SAALA), Dylan Brady (studio505) and Michael Trudgeon (RMIT D-Lab/Crowd Productions) spearhead Phase Change, a project that explores the future of the TarraWarra Estate and Museum, as well as the Yarra Valley more broadly, in relation to the changing nature of the environment. Engaging directly with global warming and its ecological impacts at a local and regional scale, and working across a range of design disciplines and related practices, Phase Change seeks to envision scenarios for sustainable and resilient futures. Phase Change takes the form of a working design laboratory which, evolving throughout the course of the exhibition, providing a place for discussion, debate and lively interaction between the public and students in order to generate a dynamic, participatory installation.
