With No Context

Collisions, directed by artist and filmmaker Lynette Wallworth, is a poetic virtual reality (VR) journey to the homeland of indigenous elder Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe in the remote Western Australian Pilbara desert. The Martu lived largely untouched by Western culture until the 1960s. Nyarri's first contact with Western culture came in the 1950s via a dramatic collision between his traditional world view and the cutting edge of Western science and technology when he witnessed firsthand, and with no context, an atomic test.

Collisions plays at the Exploratorium Sep 21 to Oct 22. Ticket info here.
