Martu elder Nyarri Nyarri Morgan’s first contact with Western culture came in the 1950s when he witnessed a secret atomic bomb testing in the South Australian desert. Now with the advance of virtual reality technology you will be transported back to this desert community with Morgan as your guide.
Collisions is a short, personal film experience like no other. Lynette Wallworth’s pioneering work offers us the true potential of technology, to transport us to a different time and place. With Morgan we experience the dramatic collision between his traditional world view and the cutting edge of science at this confounding, profoundly emotional moment of unfathomable destruction.
Collisions runs from 21 February to 16 April with the gallery open 10-5 Tues & Wed and 10-8:30 Thurs-Sun. Sessions run every 30mins.
