Design Notes: The ‘First State 88’ exhibition collection of installations presented many design challenges including this multi cultural exhibition in a corner of the pathway.

Review: “First State 88, the NSW Government’s $20 million supershow.... an original and spectacular mixture of audio visual, film, puppetry and theatre crafts... Attention to detail is impressive at all stages.... it is a first class experience.” (John Butler. ‘Audio Vision’ Magazine 1989).
