A short documentary about Troy Innocent, a 2018 Melbourne Art Trams artist.
This artwork makes one of Melbourne’s trams playable—literally. While the geometric imagery is an artwork in itself, an augmented reality app reveals another layer of animation and sound when the passing tram is viewed from the camera of a phone. This plays a musical score generated by the app as it detects fragments of the design.
Playable cities connect people and place, appropriating urban environments and infrastructure—such as the Melbourne tram—through playful takeover, changing and renegotiating its meaning. Playful citizens see their town or city in a new way, feeling a new sense of connection, and sensing new ways it could be.
