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.)"

QuickTime VR panoramas of the Sydney cityscapes

Photography exhibition: "VIRTUAL CITY – PETER MURPHY": 1 April – 31 May, 2006, Ground Floor & Level 2.

"Virtual City was an exhibition of Peter Murphy's vibrant exploration of the cityscapes of Sydney using new imaging technologies in photography and new media. In this series, he captures the relationship between human activity, the city's man–made and natural environments and also the beauty of the city 'resting' at dusk. His use of multiple and exaggerated perspectives reveals a surprising vision of the CBD. The Customs House City Model is also incorporated, showing the artist's fascination for comparisons between the real and simulated versions of the city."
