Translation: Tracking of the journey.
Photograph by Russell James. Collaborative art by Clifton Bieundurry (AUS).
James' photograph of the feet represents the journey taken by modern civilization as it trampled the country that was so significant to the indigenous culture.
The collaborative art by Bieundurry represents the path indigenous people have taken through gathering information and gaining knowledge over time. The intersections represent significant decisions in the cultural past that have influenced cultural knowledge and identity. For Walmajarri people, there have been important decisions made at various times in their very long history, in this way strengthening and maintaining culture.
The combined art piece represents the journey of both cultures that have lead us to where we are today.
