The Big City


National Archives of Australia
Federation Documents

The National Archives of Australia had a special display case made to show a group of documents that include the Australian Constitution. Among the documents displayed are documents signed by Queen Victoria. The preservation experts determined that the documents must only get brief periods of expoure to low light so this video displays the documents where they are in the case if the case was open. The dimension of the program is 3840 x 3840 which retains  the high resolution of the duocuments through the projection.
