We worked alongside the National Museum of Australia to create a series of interactives for the Home Front exhibition, exploring life in Australia during the First World War.

We developed a number of interactives for the exhibition. Highlights include Under the Microscope, a fascinating touchscreen piece examining ant specimens collected by German Hans Overback who spent four years in Australia’s two largest internment camps.

Additionally, we built two iPad interactives: one exploring war photographs taken by Melbourne Age correspondent Phillip Schuler, and another giving visitors the chance to browse the 1915-1916 Myer catalogue.
