BLACK CROW – AR exhibition
14 July - 5 September 2021 Foyer
*Please note: Because of recent COVID restrictions, the delivery of this exhibition has been delayed until 14 July.
Black Crow is a metaphor for the wise watchful eye of male Aboriginal role models and their key responsibilities within the community.
This AR exhibition expands on Narungga and Trawoolwaway artist Daen Sansbury-Smith’s representation of Narungga and Palawa stories, art and culture. It explores transference of inherited knowledge, stories and responsibility from a father to his young children. Through ochre, charcoal and acrylic on canvas, Sansbury-Smith maps Ancestral memory and connection to country, sharing stories of pre and post-contact Aboriginal history and culture. Collaborating with Isobel Knowles, Sansbury-Smith brings his work to life with animated elements and augmented reality.
The animated AR elements are viewed on a smart device using the EyeJack app, downloadable via Apple App store or Google Play.
Proudly presented as part of NAIDOC week.
