Exhibition Design


South East Water


LookEar was commissioned to revitalise the education centre and create a new, vibrant and engaging display.

Based around the concept of ‘Down the Dunny’, LookEar created a playful and highly interactive display that presents:

  • the invisible world of water supply and waste

  • the micro-bugs that work in the sewerage system

  • water conservation and pollution

  • weird stuff and strange finds.

LookEar and associates were responsible for:

  • interpretive theme development

  • research and content development

  • display text and scripts

  • graphic design

  • interactive display design

  • manufacture and installation

  • project management


The project was developed in association with Mauhaus and Sound Environment.
