A light-hearted and expansive exhibition of installations that let you experience the sensation of being submerged inside a wave and step into the shoes of a sensorily-deprived stranger.

Merging creativity and technology this major exhibition by leading media arts organisation Experimenta presents work from 20 local and international contemporary artists, including eight never-before-seen commissions. As part of Melbourne Festival 2017, Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art challenges artists to consider prominent biologist E.O. Wilson's belief that humankind's greatest challenge is our combination of 'Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and god-like technologies'.

A light-hearted and expansive exhibition, through a variety of installations you'll get to experience the sensation of being submerged inside a wave, use VR goggles to step into the shoes of a stranger and explore what impact sensory deprivation has on the body. As technology becomes increasingly space age, Experimenta Make Sense will engross your senses in the search for what it means to be human.

Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art is on-show from Monday, October 2 until Saturday, November 11 at RMIT Gallery.
