THE PROJECT.........................

In 2018, Ignite SA and the SA Museum presented the Preserve Gigabit Challenge, the challenge was to modernise the visitor experience and unlock the museums vast Aboriginal Cultural Collection, which is the largest in the world. Sandpit were the winners of the challenge and in collaboration with the SA Museum and the Yuendumu Artists we began to prototype our idea.

The SA Museum selected 27 Yuendumu Doors as the subject for the prototype. These incredible artworks depict the rich cultural narratives of the Warlpiri people.  We set out to make a digital version of the Doors that the visitor could interact with to discover their stories. The technology we created magically connects the visitors smartphone to a projected image. It allows them to use their phone as a “cursor” to explore the symbols on each door. 

Once selected, content appears in the palm of their hand. In the backend, the Museum is able to easily upload text, videos and images to tell the stories behind the paintings.
