PLAN JERICHO @ AVALON AIR SHOW
The brief was to bring the vision of a fifth generation Air Force to life and inspire people to be part of protecting Australia’s freedoms into the future. We created the Jericho Precinct at the Avalon Air Show 2019. From inspiring kids with Jasper’s dream of flight and a future in aerospace; to inspiring people across Defence with the spirit of innovation; to inspiring leaders with the incredible opportunities of a future which combines creativity with technology. No matter how different our audiences are we are all driven by human emotion, stimulated by colour and imagination, and awed by the incredible talent within us all.
What a privilege to work on something at this scale, with the creative freedom, support of leadership at the most senior levels, and the opportunity to deeply collaborate with so many talented RAAF people and external partners. With all the metrics we have to measure success, the most telling metric was the wonder on people’s faces as they immersed themselves in our world.
It was incredible working with Spinifex Group on two dome installations as the central focus point of the Jericho Precinct. The 15m dome told the story of Jasper, a little girl with big dreams to fly (animation by Animal Logic Academy), and was the largest projection dome seen in Australia, made interactive through a series of touch tablets and clever tech. The 8m dome told the story of Plan Jericho's fifth-generation edge. This beautiful case study is a story of big dreams realised through creativity, partnerships and stretching all sorts of boundaries.
