Hologram Dinosaurs at the Australian Museum A prehistoric story comes to life with a modern twist

 

Australian Museum

1 September, 2023, Sydney: Travel back in time to a pre-historic world and come face to face with a mighty T.rex with Hologram Dinosaurs, a new virtual installation at the Australian Museum (AM), opening 2 September as part of the AM’s annual Dinosaur Festival leading into the school holidays.

Upon entering Hologram Dinosaurs, visitors will discover four pre-historic environments where they will encounter and interact with herds of dinosaurs in their natural habitat – some 10m tall and 20m long – as well as dive with ancient marine reptiles and soar with the earliest vertebrates, pterosaurs.

Created by the Australian organisation, AXIOM HOLOGRAPHICS,  Hologram Dinosaurs uses cutting-edge hologram technology to bring the 300 million-year-old story roaring to life for a new generation of dinosaur enthusiasts.

 Australian Museum Head of Exhibitions, Fran Dorey said that Hologram Dinosaursuses digital technology to take people on a journey into lost worlds.

“Hologram technology is a magical realm. Through this breathtaking digital technology our visitors will experience the trepidation and excitement of meeting long-extinct animals as well as stand in the shadows of the largest creatures to have ever walked the earth,” she said.

“Part of the AM’s annual Dinosaur Festival, Hologram Dinosaurs provides visitors with the perfect blend of dino-entertainment and a scientific learning experience,” Dorey added.

Australian Museum Curator of Palaeontology, Dr Matt McCurry said that through studying fossils palaeontologists look back at past worlds and their intriguing animals.

“Dinosaurs have always captured our imagination, and the use of holographic digital technology represents an exciting way for people to see these creatures in the flesh.”

CEO of AXIOM Holographics, Bruce Dell, said the installation is not only a visual and sound feast, but also offers an entertaining and fresh perspective of these ancient creatures.

“Holograms are produced by the intersection of light and matter and are designed to be viewed from all angles. Unlike VR, visitors do not need to wear headsets to feel immersed and experience what it is like to walk among these giants,” Dell said. “We are thrilled to work with the AM, the nation’s first museum, to showcase these prehistoric creatures in a way their visitors would never before have experienced.”

Hologram Dinosaurs is part of the AM’s annual spring school holidays Dinosaur festival, which includes a bumper line-up of dinosaur events such as T.rex autopsy and Scientist for a Day.

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.
