What is your reality?
How do you know?

MOD.IFY was MOD’s inaugural exhibition, attracting 54,520 visitors. 

Feeling Human, an exhibit exploring pain perception, and Birds and Bees, an exhibit exploring birds, bees, and navigating sight, both received a Gold Award at the Design Institute of Australia SA/NT Awards in November 2018. Birds and Bees was also awarded the Australian Interior Design Awards Best of the State in May 2019.

Anika Johnstone, MOD.’s first Senior Exhibitions Manager was awarded the Winnovation Award in October 2018 for her work on bringing MOD. to life. The MOD. team responsible for the opening of MOD. were awarded the University of South Australia’s Vice Chancellor Award for Professional Excellence in March 2019.

If you didn’t get to see it, or just miss hanging out in the human-size research tunnel we built, check out the 360 degree video below and re-live the memories.

MOD.IFY: it’s not what you know, will take you on an immersive and unexpected journey that will challenge what you think you know about what it means to be human. Explore artificial worlds and augmented realities, challenge your perception of pain and injury, be part of stories about space and place and consider what makes us human versus animal or machine.

Provocative, inspiring and sometimes uncomfortable, MOD.IFY showcases research and creative collaborations, interactive exhibits and dynamic programming that invites the curious to explore new ideas at the intersection of art, science and innovation.

MOD. respects First Nations communities and cultures. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this exhibition/ exhibit contains images, voices and the names of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and may include those who are deceased.
