Silversun Pictures

National Capital Authority Exhibition

National Capital Authority

In redeveloping the National Capital Exhibition in Canberra, we wanted to offer visitors an interactive exhibit that would simultaneously show past and present Canberra, as well as the city’s original design by Walter and Marion Burley-Griffin. Working with our team in the SilverSun Rocket Lab, we developed an augmented reality experience, where users hover an iPad over a scale model to see the various iterations of the cityscape. The iPads use real time engine technology, meaning the screen changes in real time without delays in loading new images. We have had incredible feedback from this installation, with visitors reporting that it has changed their perceptions of not only Canberra, but what a museum exhibit should be.
