Uncle Larry Walsh
Melbourne Museum tasked us to create an innovative and inspiring education space that connects the Museum’s experiences and stories with digital technologies and 21st century learning.
We designed a flexible solution that integrates a wide range of technologies (VR, iPads, green screen and more); uses wall and floor surfaces as a single 27-meter wide infinity projection space or multiple individual screens; and allows the Museum to easily switch between modes, create new content and publish media.
We also created the flagship experience for the space. River Connections is a bespoke, immersive film that submerges students in Indigenous perspectives of the Australian landscape and its psyche.
River Connections was made in collaboration with Museums Victoria and Indigenous elders from the Murray River. Each scene, image and sound, as well as the overall structure, was developed through a consultative and collaborative process of deep listening sessions and visiting the elders on Country.
