This array of touchtables is designed to give visitors to this permanent exhibition space a highly engaging and intuitive way of interacting with an expansive collection of images that trace the history of Aboriginal people in this region.
With a background that mimics the topography and terrain in Carnarvon, a variety of animated creatures (turtle, dugong, galah, perentie, burrowing bee), and the occasional storm sequence, this interactive creates a dynamic focal point in the space.
The interface also features an integrated collage tool that enables visitors to select, montage, and share historical and user-generated images.
Gwoonwardu Mia was completed in June 2012 for Gascoyne Aboriginal Heritage & Cultural Centre in Carnarvon, Western Australia.
