In 2019 ACMI embarked on a $40 million redevelopment project to reimagine the museum and create a more open and welcoming environment, enhance its learning spaces and showcase new innovations in moving image technology.

A key aspect of the redevelopment was to produce 7 key interactives for its new permanent exhibition the story of the moving image, cementing its position as one of the most innovative and significant cultural icons in Melbourne.

Our studio took the interactive and immersive elements from detailed design all the way through to installation. The resulting works frame the most significant moments in moving image history, from the origins and future of cinema through to Australian culture and stories, the rise of video games, and how screens inform, influence and empower us. In addition to these cutting edge interactives, Grumpy managed the design and build of the data visualisation 'Constellation' which connects in-gallery journeys to the cosmos of screen content outside ACMI.
