The Bunbury Museum Heritage Centre
The landscape occupied by the township of Bunbury has a long and rich history. From the Noongar people who have inhabited the area for more than 40,000 years, through to the British colonialists who settled here in the 1800s, the area has played a significant role in the growth and development of both cultures that continues today.
Opening its doors for the for the first time in November 2016, The Bunbury Museum Heritage Centre was commissioned as a means of commemorating and celebrating these shared histories. Through a variety of installations ranging from projections, experiential displays and interactive touch screens, visitors can access first-hand accounts of the towns pioneers, learn about Bunbury’s numerous shipwrecks, the legacy of the towns street racing culture of the 1950s and 60s, as well as the deep connection between the Noongar people and the area’s precolonial history.
In terms of research and production, The Pod was responsible for collating and conceptualising a wide range of historical documents, photographs and video footage into engaging digital displays. This involved thematic design development and user experience design through to motion graphics, animation, video & photograph editing and interactive programming. The Pod also oversaw the installation process, ensuring our end-to-end involvement with the project.
