Power of 1

"The various displays, in particular the 'voice' room, posed many questions in my mind, which is always a positive indicator. It is good to think about how we contribute to social and political views in a rapidly changing environment. No clear answer! But at least it has me thinking..."

Power of 1 preview

Power of 1: Does your voice count? is an ambitious cross platform project that celebrates the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of individual voice. It includes a physical exhibition, art installations, a national baseline survey, live online interactive activities, tangible data visualisation, social media and good old fashioned debate to create a unique interactive experience.

Visitors to the exhibition are invited to join a conversation around improving Australian democratic processes in different ways appropriate to each generation. In the Builders Room, hand write a note that is then scanned by a hidden camera. In the Boomers Room, record an audio voxpop. In the Gen X Room, "tweet" from a Commodore 64 computer from the 80s. In the Gen Y room, record a video selfie from one of 12 hanging iPods.

The exhibition is based on the results of a national baseline survey conducted by the Museum in conjunction with the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis at the University of Canberra, that canvasses the four generations: Builders, Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y for their views on democracy and our political system.

The exhibition visualises the responses from the baseline survey in a 3D column installation that highlights how different generations respond to similar questions about democracy, and their level of satisfaction with the political system. Visitors to Power of 1 can participate by answering questions through video, audio and text – adding to the content of the exhibition.

Power of 1: Does your voice count? is currently on display at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, and is open daily from 9am-­‐5pm. The online survey can be taken at http://powerof1voice.moadoph.gov.au/
