Dr Troy Innocent

Senior Lecturer (Games and Interactivity)


Troy Innocent is an artist, academic, and educator investigating playful wayfinding to reimagine cities. His nonobjective art practice explores abstractions drawn from urban space expressed in works of code, sculpture, animation, sound and installation. Innocent’s interactive artworks use invented languages to create constructed worlds, exploring the potential of mixed realities to manifest new ways of being. 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. He co-founded the digital arts collective Cyber Dada in 1989 and through pioneering works such as Idea-ON>! contributed to the Australian new media arts practice during the 90s. Innocent teaches pervasive game design at Swinburne University; and is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery.
