Wiradjuri Murriyang

Materials | Video on dome

Wiradjuri Murriyang means Wiradjuri Sky World. This is where Baiame, the great creator lives. Scott has created images based on his own cultural interpretation of the Wiradjuri constellations as described in archival narratives researched by Trevor Leaman. Trevor has placed the constellation artworks in the Murriyang in relation to these narratives. Wiradjuri patterns and mark-making in the work are contemporary. Scott doesn’t copy the original marks on trees because they are linked to ceremony. He uses these traditional marks as a guide to his contemporary graphic work. Kate Richards has joined the team as the consultant producer.

The Dome Project is linked to the Big Skies Collaboration: creatively celebrating people’s connections with the cosmos in southeastern Australia’s rural inland.’ www.bigskiescollaboration.wordpress.com
