FORM and Lightwell have collaboratively produced the One Road: Canning Stock Route Project app for mobile and web, which repurposes the content and interactivity of the internationally award-winning One Road multimedia interactive and allows participating communities to access this content for the first time outside of the Yiwarra Kuju exhibition.
Part rich cultural resource, part travel guide, the One Road app showcases the content of the original One Road interactive and includes an extensive range of new content. Featuring over 140 videos, hundreds of stories and photographs, an interactive historic map of the stock route and interchangeable aerial imagery, archival records and animated creatures, One Road offers users an intimate insight into the Canning Stock Route and the Country it intersects. It includes essential information for 4WD travellers about first aid, permits, preparation camping and cultural protocols as well as information about the Aboriginal languages spoken in the stock route region and a dictionary of essential words.
One Road employs Alfred Canning’s hand-drawn 1910 map as its interface and transports users to the stock route Country, bringing the cultural, artistic and social features of the Western Desert to life. Users fly over the landscape, descending at multiple nodes along the route to discover the remarkable story of the world’s longest and reputedly most dangerous stock route, told for the first time from the perspective of Aboriginal people.
Optimised for iOS and web One Road serves as a gateway to a rich trove of curated Project materials in Mira Canning Stock Route Project Archive and is ideal for education, tourism and international audiences.
