Floodlines shares your memories of Queensland's 2010-11 floods and Cyclone Yasi – making sense and celebrating the spirit of recovery.
This travelling exhibition from State Library of Queensland uses technology to tell the stories of those affected by natural disasters and will be on display at Kingaroy Library from Thursday 11th September to Friday 3rd October 2014.
Using augmented reality technology, the Floodlines app allows you to simulate the effects of the floods and Cyclone Yasi on Queensland areas, and some of the people affected share their own experiences in 13 personal video stories.
Through photos in the Flood and Cyclone Mosaic, Queenslanders help tell the rich and complex story of a summer we will never forget, and visitors are encouraged to upload their own photos to add to the story.
