Violet Sunscreen tablets is a proposed cosmetic product for the NSW Cancer Council. Undertaken in conjunction with the University of Technology, Sydney: INSEARCH, the Violet sun care product intends to market the recently developed coral sunscreen medicament.
Following the introduction of new 2016 NSW council regulations regarding pools and open storage tanks, Alexander Murphy led a team of individuals from engineering, construction and corporate business backgrounds in designing a solution for this contemporary regulation.
Any open storage tank holding more than 15cm of water must have a surrounding barrier to protect citizens (particularly minors) from this hazard.
The solution entailed designing a hollow PVC level on the surface of the water to mitigate against any potential impact force that may occur (a child falling into water). The PVC level ensures that water can still be stored below the surface, but only allowing a maximum of 15cm of water to appear above the surface.
The tank ledge construction was hidden by a layer of stone which covers any trace of this tank. This tank allows rainwater to filter through stone and be stored below the surface.
This ledge was designed to be an aesthetic solution to this contemporary regulation.
This construction was contracted by Banksiaview Professional Services Pty Ltd.

"VENTURE: a light installation at Vivid Sydney 2014 that encapsulates the uncertainty and excitement felt by the youth as they explore their future."
This project collaborated with Make3D (a 3D printing and design agency) and Doug Ford Analogue Design (An electrical engineering corporation). This project was constructed utilising 3D printed components, LED custom designed light strips, DMX programmed controllers and infrared triggers - which allows this project to be interactive and intuitive with the surrounding audience/atmosphere. Attended by over 2.3 million people, this event is the largest lighting installation expo within Australia. The Venture Vivid project was the winner of an AU$10,000 design competition grant for this project.

The Sector is a premium pathway provider into future employment. Through allowing an unemployed or tertiary individual the opportunity to access essentual workplace skills, inductions and enterprise observations – the individual will increase potential employment prospects.
The Sector immerses its customers and clients through an interactive and real-time simulation environment – placing the trainees into the atmosphere of a productive workplace. Through subscribing to a variety of skills, experience and registered opportunities – the trainee will be involved in a variety of complex and realistic problem-solving situations (A replica of the modern workplace).
‘Bubble’ is an innovative tool in applying conservative water use in the home garden. This device divides a users recommended weekly watering schedule into a continuous drip water flow. Through providing 6 pre-programmed functions, users can best select their watering regime based upon current watering restrictions. ‘Bubble’ is energy efficient, generating sufficient power from the continuous water flow. To maximise potential applications of this device, ‘Bubble’ will include universal adapter couplings, allowing the device to be installed into both water storage facilities and traditional tap systems. This device is targeted to be used by residential properties, farm lands and horticulture hobbyists.

Participated in a television commercial for UTS:INSEARCH. This advertisement has received over 45,000 youtube viewers.
This report was devised by a 6 member group completing a deep dive research report on agriculture in Bannekuppe, Karnatarka India. This impact project was completed and published in February 2016. This report was constructed in conjunction with a social entrepreneurship internship undertaken with 40K Globe. This report researched potential avenues in which the local agricultural blue-collar workers could expand and prosper from increased opportunities that yield a higher return - whilst avoiding corrupt market segments.

Participated in a marketing campaign '#IamNotaNumber' over electronic, print and social media mediums. This campaign attracted both domestic and international attention from students seeking to attain alternative entrance to an Australian university. Alexander was a domestic brand representative for this campaign - responsible for maintaining a social presence over facebook, twitter, youtube and 3rd party websites.
For the December 2015 release of ATAR results, Alexander collaborated with Sydney PR agencies and DJ Tigerlilly to sponsor the #ATAR and #IamNotaNumber 'trending discussions' column on twitter - interacting/mentoring with over 5,000 student users.

Engineers and scientists benefit society through applying their theoretical and practical skills to benefit the wider society. With the ever increasing ties between humanity and technology, engineers and scientists strive to innovate solutions to push society forward and impact the human race as a group or as an individual. Engineers and scientists are responsible for various avenues of human existence. These avenues can be analysed from the viewpoint of the body and the mind; each markedly impacting the human condition. The human condition is a considerable factor that influences the deliverables that engineers and scientists produce; without considerations to the human condition, engineers and scientists would produce without important considerations into the variables that the solution accounts for. Engineers and scientists care about the human condition through a variety of avenues where the body and mind are paramount.
