VOS-Rory Spence Lecture Theatre, School of Architecture & Design, Inveresk CampusSummary:
Rone will discuss how his work has transitioned from the streets, to white wall gallery, to the immersive experience he creates now. How the interaction and engagement with his art has changed now by incorporating new technologies such as AR and VR.
This spring renowned street artist Rone joins Junction for a series of virtual reality experiences and artist talks, celebrating his recent Empire exhibition. Finding the friction between beauty and decay is a thread that runs through much of Rone's work. Rone has gone from spearheading Melbourne's fledgling street art movement in the early 2000's to being a celebrated fixture on the international street art scene. His recent immersive installations celebrate the decaying glory of a once-magnificent manor.
