JAMES CAMERON — CHAL­LENG­ING THE DEEP

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - EXPERIENCE -

James Cameron — Chal­leng­ing the Deep is an ex­cit­ing new im­mer­sive ex­hi­bi­tion that traces Cameron’s life­long pur­suit of, and achieve­ments in, deep ocean sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and ex­plo­ration — in­clud­ing his record-break­ing dives in Deepsea Chal­lenger, the sub­mersible ves­sel he de­signed that was built in Syd­ney.

Vis­i­tors will experience how Cameron’s drive and passion for un­der­stand­ing and ex­plor­ing our oceans has shone a light on the spec­tac­u­lar phe­nom­ena and mys­ter­ies of the least-known places on Earth, and en­abled mar­itime ar­chae­ol­o­gists to doc­u­ment and un­der­stand the ship­wrecks of RMS Ti­tanic and Ger­man bat­tle­ship Bismarck.

The ex­hi­bi­tion plunges vis­i­tors into an un­der­wa­ter en­vi­ron­ment us­ing cin­ema-scale pro­jec­tions, along with arte­facts and spec­i­mens found on his ex­pe­di­tions; dis­plays from the de­sign and con­struc­tion of the Deepsea Chal­lenger; un­der­wa­ter record­ing, light­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and div­ing tech­nolo­gies pi­o­neered by Cameron; and props and cos­tumes from fea­ture films The Abyss and Ti­tanic, made pos­si­ble by his drive to un­der­stand the un­known world of the deep.

This ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­hi­bi­tion runs from 29 May 2018 un­til 30 Jan­uary 2019 at Aus­tralian Na­tional Mar­itime Mu­seum, Syd­ney.
