Behind the scenes at the launch of Fractured Heart Interactive… National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra on the 15th February 2013.
Our team came in from everywhere to be present – Luku from Adelaide, Craig and Trevor from Sydney, and Cindi from Perth via Adelaide.

On Thursday the NFSA gallery volunteers attended for training, and thus at last this great project came to live in its fantastic new home! (more…)
By the end of the first week in Canberra, the team are well on the way to having the sculptures installed and ready for interactive media. (more…)
At long last the t-shirts designed by Luku as a first edition to thank our pozible supporters… have arrived from the printers. Looks like we will be packaging and posting these in early December. Hooray!
