Screen Worlds is a major permanent exhibition for ACMI at Federation Square.
Megafun were commissioned by ACMI (The Australian Centre for the Moving Image) to create four exhibits for Screen Worlds. These consisted of:
- Tye the Tasmanian Tiger 3D Zoetrope – an extraordinary three dimensional variation on a traditional Zoetrope where solid characters appear to come to life and dance across a spinning disk.
- Time Slice – an immersive and interactive homage to the “Matrix” films where performers seem to be able to hang in mid air as objects move around them.
- Flip Book – a personalised, electronic version of an old fashioned flipbook
- Bird in a Box – a remarkable illusion of a three dimensional lyrebird apparently foraging forever inside a wooden box
All of the exhibits demonstrate one of the tenets of the concept of the moving image and form key elements of this iconic Melbourne exhibition.
