Dr Troy Innocent is an artist, academic, designer, coder and educator. His public art practice combines street art, game development, augmented reality, and urban design to situate play as central to the re-imagination and co-creation of cities. In 2017, Troy was awarded the Melbourne Knowledge Fellowship to research playable cities in the UK and Europe, developing new projects in Bristol and Barcelona. This approach is also central to ‘urban code-making’, a methodology he developed for situating play in cities such as Melbourne, Istanbul, Sydney and Hong Kong.
Troy’s visual arts practice explores the language of digital code in works of design, sculpture, animation, sound and installation and has twenty-five years experience in gallery-based exhibitions, symposia and site-specific projects, including participation in over sixty exhibitions.
