This digital collage was created by Sharon Nampijinpa Anderson as a quick test-run for a larger work that is currently in progress - in collaboration with digital artist Gretta Louw. The central image is a low-fi shot of Nampijinpa's traditional country; the english name for the site is Talbot Well. It's after the wet season as the water is high, and there are even swans peacefully swimming atop the fresh water's surface - a rare sight out in the desert. Nampijinpa has included the faces of all her family members - both alive and deceased - which is a very significant (and potentially controversial) choice for an indigenous artist. The final piece deals with issues of ownership, dreaming, cultural heritage, and responsibility. More on the final piece soon!
