A vanguard of modern museum practice, Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition takes the creation myths and legends of our indigenous communities and transforms these into an array of digital representations that are readily accessible to all.
The senior custodians of the Martu country, Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) and Ngaanyatjarra lands, who act as keepers and transmitters of knowledge, culture and values, have shared these stories with curators at National Museum of Australia giving us all insights into their past, present and future.
The stunningly brilliant Digital Dome features stories of the Seven Sisters on a six-metre, state-of-the-art dome showing artworks, animations and vision of the sisters flying into the night sky.
