The client positioned a central feature in the Royal Melbourne Exhibition Buildings at the 2000 Flower and Garden Show. The brief required a representation of nature in its prehistoric form juxtaposed by a garden of the future. A strange world represented by a major central focus including multimedia content.
We came up with the idea of constructing a mountain, where on one side “pre history” was represented, on the other was the “future”, and in the middle the public was able to walk through a multimedia tunnel. I researched and designed the motion design content of many botanical names and illustrations as well as provide palette cues for the installation.
The top image shows the inside of the tunnel that housed the plasma screens which were built in.
One side was the ancient forest side, lush, very green and dense and on the other contrasting side futuristic fauna, Japanese inspired flowing brook, housed flowers under glass domes, vivid colours, a total contrast.
