Pull on a headset and get an exclusive view of Lynette Wallworth’s EMMY award winning Virtual Reality work, Collisions. Witness a collision of culture, technology and storytelling which takes us on a virtual reality journey to the homeland of indigenous elder Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe in remote Western Australian Pilbara desert and his first, devastating introduction to the Western world.
The 1950s saw Australia performing its first atomic tests and Nyarri, with no warning, or context, experience his first taste of Western civilisation. Offering us a view to what he saw, and in reflecting on this extraordinary event, Nyarri shares his perspective on the Martu way to care for the planet.
Set in one of the most beautiful and remote places in Australia, and told through the lens of the world’s oldest living culture, Collisions is story telling at its finest, and an opportunity not to be missed.
