Wonderland, the interactive exhibition conceived and created in Melbourne by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), has just been awarded the 2019 GLAMi’s Best in Show award as well as the 2019 GLAMi Exhibition Media or Experience: Immersive Category award at the 23rd annual MuseWeb conference in Boston, US. Other institutions vying for the Exhibition Media or Experience: Immersive Category award included The Met for Visitors to Versailles and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for Mandela: Struggle for Freedom.
Made in Melbourne by the team at ACMI, this wholly original exhibition brought the museum’s extensive creative and curatorial expertise together with a leading team of Australian collaborators. ACMI Xcel creative tech accelerator alum and Melbourne-based digital creative studio Sandpit, designed the interactive map that brought visitors’ exhibition experience to life and delivered take-home digital content. Sydney-based creatives Grumpy Sailor designed the standout 360-degree immersive Mad Hatter’s Tea Party experience using premium projectors and engineering advice from Panasonic. While Mosster Studio created The Queen’s Croquet Ground, a paper-to-digital play space that animated visitors’ handmade card soldiers on a giant screen.
