Brisbane back from the future

"Have you ever wondered what Brisbane looked like before white settlement? Have you ever wanted to know what's under all that concrete? Brisbanite Brett Leavy can help with that, as he develops a role-playing game (RPG) that simulates the lives of the tribes that once populated our city.

His game will use topographical data and 3D modelling to allow you to explore almost photo-realistic simulations of the CBD, South Bank, West End, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Woolloongabba and other Brisbane suburbs as they appeared before white settlement.

He recently demonstrated the game at the launch of the PIVOTAL Summit, which will bring together world leaders in spatial information technology, sustainability, climate change and governance in Brisbane next month."

Virtual Warrane: An Aboriginal contribution to the vision

"Aboriginal multimedia expert Brett Leavy is exhibiting realistic simulations of Sydney Cove and Circular Quay before the arrival of colonial settlers in the late 18th century.

Using Unity (beta) game engine software, he and a team of modellers, photographers and sound artists have set up at Sydney's colonial-era Customs House a wall of media screens and a video gaming room to educate visitors about the early vegetation, wildlife, fishing and culture of the original residents of what is now the Sydney business district. (Ghostly wireframes of some of the current CBD towers, and the Sydney Opera House, can be navigated as an overlay to the underlying environmental simulation.)"

Muzeul Civilizatiei Populare Traditionale ASTRA (Romania)

"Loc ideal pentru păstrarea spiritului românesc autentic, Muzeul în aer liber din Dumbrava Sibiului este aşezat într–un adevărat paradis, în rezervaţia naturală "Dumbrava Sibiului". Dispunând de un lac şi de peste zece kilometri de alei, muzeul prilejuieşte plimbări de tot felul, de la clasicul mers pe jos, până la un scurt tur cu trăsura, cu sania sau cu barca. ...

Povestea Muzeului ASTRA începe în urmă cu mai bine de un secol, odată cu primele manifestări ale unui vis al românilor din Transilvania de a organiza la Sibiu, sub egida Asociaţiunii pentru Literatura Română şi Cultura Poporului Român, o colecţie etnografică. Aceasta avea rolul de a pune în valoare cele mai reprezentative mărturii despre specificul românesc, despre ceea ce ne diferenţia în comparaţie cu alte popoare, lucruri şi fenomene care puteau explica tuturor cine suntem. 'Productele' măiestriei românilor trebuia să reprezinte dovada creativităţii tehnice şi ale hărniciei acestui neam. Prima expoziţie a Muzeului Asociaţiunii, instituţie de la care provine numele ASTRA, a avut loc în 1905."

Babakiueria: the colonialisation of European Australians by Indigenous Australians

"Presenter Duranga Manika (Michelle Torres) describes her fascination with white people and their customs and explains how she spent six months living with a 'typical white family' (Tony Barry, Cecily Polson, Kelan Angel, Margeurita Haynes). She also asks members of the general public for their opinions on white people and speaks to the Minister for White Affairs (Bob Maza).

[Geoffrey] Atherden's script takes stereotypes of Australian culture and, with tongue–in–cheek humour, views them as though for the first time, as mysterious, alien and strange. Here, the barbecue is singled out. Elsewhere Manika describes the football match as ritualised violence and betting at the TAB as a religion, while a police commissioner calls the Anzac Day March a ritual where white people 'honour their warrior ancestors' but wonders why it can't be done at home.

Presenter Duranga Manika's ethnographic study of white people simplifies, patronises and mystifies her subjects. Every mundane detail of this one family's everyday life is invested with serious cultural significance. Bob Maza's Minister for White Affairs compresses a history of government treatment of Indigenous Australians into one self–satisfied, authoritative figure. It is interesting that while these characters treat 'white' culture with such fascination, they treat 'black' culture as such a given that the audience does not find out much about it."
