“Up Periscope!” allows visitors to transport themselves into the NGV through footage and sound, explore the forest-like structure, and experience and engage with the gallery in new ways. Periscopes can be sat upon and stood within thus promoting reflection and play, while others draw attention to key aspects of the gallery including Federation Court and the Waterwall via the viewmasters that broadcast a combination of looped, edited, and surveillance footage.
