Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Kelly Hill Caves

Kelly Hill Caves

Part light show, part guided meditation, Sandpit created a completely unique in-cave experience for Kangaroo Island’s Kelly Hill Caves in partnership with the South Australian Department of Environment and Water.

Visitors to the Kelly Hill caves are guided underground, into a world unlike any other. There, they hear the story of how the caves came to be. This story is abstractly illustrated onto the incredible natural canvas of the cave walls through the medium of coloured lighting.

Spanning 500 million years of geological change in the space of 20 minutes, the story moves through continental shifts, asteroid hits and the rise and fall of entire species.

Sandpit worked with lighting specialist and system designer Chris Petridis to achieve the stunning visual effects and collaborated with composition consultant Cameron Goodall and sound designer Matthew Hadley on the audio. The voiceover was provided by actor and long-time sandpit collaborator Matt Crook.

This was Sandpit’s second project working deep underground in a cave and we were able to bring a level of unique expertise to working in such a specific and challenging natural environment.
