UNSW Illuminate is a student project that aims to empower students to apply hands-on skills on large scale professional and multidisciplinary projects. We seek to foster deep interactions between designers and engineers, allowing students to realise their creative visions while gaining practical design and manufacturing experience. This project combines the creativity of art and the innovation of engineering to demonstrate the magic of art meeting technology through light.
UNSW Illuminate began in 2015 and was originally a project under UNSW’s CREATE student society. Following 4 successful installations with VIVID Sydney, and the expansion of the team, the project has now grown to become an independent student project, rebranded under UNSW’s new ChallENG program. UNSW Illuminate, however, still remains in close collaboration with CREATE.
