screensound australia 2001

ScreenSound Australia, the National Screen and Sound Archive, is a Commonwealth Government organisation and one of Australia’s premier cultural institutions.

‘Sights and Sounds of a Nation’ is a feature exhibition exploring 100 years of Australian film, television, radio and recorded sound.

CDP produced two sets of media elements for the opening of the exhibition which was designed by Freeman Ryan Design.

Nine themed collections of audio and video clips from the collections were assembled and pressed to DVD for exhibition display.

Plasma screens and LCD panels were installed into recesses around the perimeter of the heritage listed gallery space. Each recess included detailed graphic panels and collection objects displayed in showcases.

Interactive Clips Database
Visitors sat together in touchscreen booths to explore hundreds of clips selected from ScreenSound’s extensive collections of Australian film, television and radio archives.

CDP created the interactive design and sub-contracted Adelaide based Clinic Design to create the software engine to integrate and present the multimedia elements.

High resolution touchscreens displayed the media sourced from Macintosh G4 computers.
