BRIGHT VISIONS was an opportunity to mix a pavilion type media experience with a mainstream museum exhibit. That was the brief from the client for open air museum Sovereign Hill, based in Ballarat.
The approach was to present the story of one 1800's biggest immigration events and present a selection of stories through emotive snapshots through projection mapped screens designed to draw the audience through the exhibit and out into the physical museum that waited beyond the exit doors.
One of the most projection intensive experiences that we've designed, produced and delivered, there are 5 mayor projection mapped moments throughout the exhibit utilising 14 projectors.
The highlight of the exhibit was TRUNKS, a projected mapped show pixel mapped onto 27 white shipping trunks of the era. All of the detail was projected onto this complex physical shape(s) to show the audience what these fortune hunters were able to bring on their journey and the trail of getting to goldfields that has only just begun.
The entire exhibit was designed with a contemporary aesthetic in mind - a juxtaposition to the Colonial world that wait outside the exhibit walls.
