Whenever its doors are open — whenever patrons are walking through its halls, too — QUT Art Museum's walls are filled creative pieces. That remains the case during Thinking Into Being, the Gardens Point venue's summer-long exhibition; however, pondering not just the final product but the method behind it is a pivotal part of this art and design showcase.

Highlighting the exceptional work created by former QUT students who've gone on to do huge things in creative fields — 3D artist and set designer Benjamin Donnelly has been working on upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, for instance — this exhibition is all about the thought process that brings objects, products and experiences to fruition. Each piece on display is designed to make you contemplate its design, and how design in general can bring about change.

Standout works include a seven-metre site-specific wall sculpture by design practitioner Jennifer Marchant — and a printed wall map by Kyle Bush, who studied landscape architecture and now operates in the field of social and environmental activism.

Visitors will also explore sound waves, mind maps and astrophotography, and see a game of hopscotch used to explain design processes — all until Sunday, February 27, with free entry.
