This film travels around the city of Brisbane to bring the most obscure and intriguing stories back to the Museum. It does this via a bicycle that’s equipped with 256 ultra-bright LEDs on each wheel. At speed, the LEDs blend to show a video animation and the wheels become a lens to the past. For example, a Bengal tiger named Jimmy who chased a man along Turbot Street in 1888. Or Australia’s first experimental TV broadcast that took place from a windmill on Wickham Terrace. But really, they’re just a tease to visit the Museum of Brisbane and find out more.
