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.

Vickers Vimy

Vickers Vimy

Sandpit has completed the design and delivery of the digital content for the new, permanent Vickers Vimy exhibition at the Adelaide Airport. 

We were entrusted to bring to life the story of the Vimy, a globally significant piece of aviation history.

Articulating the Vimy’s epic story involved reimagining rich archival materials into a contemporary design language. We created an array of digital interactive and video content for the space, spanning the creation of a large scale video projection, using archival film footage shot from the plane in 1919 by the Vimy crew and designing interactive kiosks that integrate archival photography, artefacts and maps.

We were responsible for the cinematography and editing of original video content that documents contemporary sites including the Memorial to Ross Smith in Adelaide, and timelapse footage of the Vimy’s relocation into its new home.

Alongside a sweeping soundscape for the overall exhibition, Sandpit also produced the first ever recording of the song “Our Flying Boys”, a celebration song written by E Ronchetti-Allein and Jack Fewster which can now be heard for the first time in 100 years at the exhibit alongside an interview by the celebrated pilot and mechanic, Wally Shiers.
