"Nawarrderken namande" (Stone Country devil devil) by Neville Namarnyilk (c)
We've been keeping a big project under wraps for the past 4 weeks and now it's time to let (some of) the cat out of the bag!
Indigital have been supported by the Australian Government to develop our augmented reality app and platform through the Prime Minister's commitment to Indigenous innovation. The grant will see us roll out our augmented reality mobile app 'Indigital Storytelling' (previously Digital Rangers) for Indigenous People's to share our stories in the fourth dimension, from anywhere.
As most of you know, we have been working on making Indigenous Augmented Reality an actual reality since 2013 (thanks for hanging on with us!). We've had our fair share of naysayers, failed prototypes and second-guesses along the way, but with a bit of support and enough funding we are now excited (and very relived) to be so close to sharing our creation with the world that it's nail-biting!
We are bringing something very special to the market right from Australia's largest cultural world heritage area and we hope you like it.
As part of our funding, we have elected to work on a significant project with Bininj Kunwaral artists from Children's Ground. We can't give too much away, but we wanted to share Senior Artist Neville Namarnyilk's contribution to our big showstopper! Nawarrderken namande (Stone Country Devil Devil) has a really big story behind him.
