CreateWorld Keynotes Speakers

Dr. Troy Innocent

Troy Innocent is an artist, academic, designer and educator whose hybrid practice traverses multiple disciplines. His public art practice incorporates pervasive game design, augmented reality, and urban design supporting a long-term investigation into interactive and speculative experiences of the city as an emergent process.

In 2017 Innocent was awarded the Melbourne Knowledge Fellowship to research and develop playable cities in the UK and Europe leading to a crossdisciplinary collaboration with urban designers, policy makers and creative facilitators to transform the city through play. This approach is also central to his public art practice through ‘urban codemaking’ – a system he developed for situating play in cities such as Melbourne, Istanbul, Sydney and Hong Kong.

Innocent teaches pervasive game design at Swinburne University; and is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery.
