Toija Cinque

Toija Cinque’s work is about exploring the intersections between mobile screens or scalable media with the reconfigurations of networked publicness tied to mediating technologies such mixed (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and social media for education and storytelling. In her project Dreaming in Extreme Reality: Step into the Western Volcanic Plains, she addresses the problem that Victorian students and the public don’t often get opportunities to learn from scientists about what is happening in our ecosystems. There is an imperative to support people (across Australia and beyond) to learn alongside our scientists. Accessing such science can support the public to value biodiversity and work towards sustainable futures.
