Beauty Rich and Rare – National Library of AustraliaCanberra
AGB Events was commissioned by the National Library of Australia to create an immersive sound and light projection experience to showcase the natural beauty of Australia’s unusual plant species.
Beauty Rich and Rare is an immersive sound and light experience illuminating Australia’s natural beauty of Australia as seen through the eyes of Joseph Banks.
This event showcases the flora and fauna that is unique to the continent of Australia and recreates the wonder experienced by Joseph Banks and the botanists, scientists, and illustrators who travelled on the Endeavour.
Presented in surround screens measuring 20 metres wide and 2.5 metres tall, Beauty Rich and Rare immerses viewers in the daring journey made during the Enlightenment that opened the eyes and minds of the European world to the Pacific.
This exhibition was supported by our technology partner Panasonic.
Beauty Rich and Rare was on exhibition at the National Library of Australia, Canberra from September 2018 – January 2019 and is currently on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.
