Smoke and Mirrors

Led by architect Jannette Le, and tutors Michael Mack, Mond Qu and Denis Vlieghe the Smoke and Mirrors Exhibition of student projects depicted independent scenes from a wizarding world of magic.

The exhibition explored the intersection of stage sets, miniatures, architecture and narrative driven design.

Teams were tasked with designing and fabricating an animated film set model. Using techniques and discussions learnt over the course of 12 days, they produced highly detailed models created using a mixture of intricately laser-cut pieces, digital fabrication techniques, hand modelling, lights and motors.

The exhibition was run in conjunction with the Melbourne Design Week, and held in the Dulux Gallery, 25 February - 25 March, 2019.
