Art and design works are increasingly understood for their potential as important cultural devices to stimulate debate and innovation through speculations about future realities. Internationally renowned work by practitioners such as Dunne and Raby at the RCA London and SymbioticA at UWA, Australia, exemplify this. The Tube is an interactive installation that represents part of the growing attention utilising art/design activity to approach, understand and process the increasingly complex, dynamic nature of contemporary systems and events.


This interactive installation/animation work by Pia Ednie-Brown and Nicholas Murray aimed to provoke the consideration of contemporary systems and events through both the content and the scope of the piece. It draws on the potential role of aesthetic modes of working to address broadly relevant socio-cultural issues and innovations. The research project reworked and merged arrangements achieved in earlier installations, such as The Shower/Saturation and Bio-See. The results are significant because architectural exhibitions rarely target an awareness of this aspect of architecture, therefore, it is useful as a developmental test case in an ongoing pursuit of these aims.


The Tube was prepared for and exhibited at Convergence: Hotspots, Melbourne for the 2004 Beijing Architecture Biennale.
