Blak Box, Artist Impression by Kevin O'Brien

Blak Box

Step inside Blak Box and embrace the First Peoples’ concept of ‘deep listening’. Based on oral storytelling, silences and the spaces in between, deep listening is a practice to develop respect and community building.

From within a state-of-the-art surround sound listening space, a powerful suite of commissioned First Peoples’ stories will respond to the past and future of the Barangaroo site, Australia’s next cultural precinct and creative stage for leading-edge public art and programming.

Blak Box is an ambitious project designed by architect, Kevin O’Brien. He is of Kaurereg, Meriam and Irish descent and known for drawing on Aboriginal concepts of space in his work. His Finding Country Exhibition was an official Collateral Event of the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale 2012 and received National and State Awards from the Australian Institute of Architects.

Commissioned by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority.
