ACMI Screen Worlds

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.
