Perpetual Nomads: an exploration of indigenous narratives and imagery through contemporary and experimental mediums

The goal of the Perpetual Nomads project is to make illustration depicting many indigenous and environmental issues through traditional art media and digital media. The team will be exploring the viability of creating Mixed Reality interactive experiences to increase the awareness, empathy, egalitarianism and environmental concern in users through these illustrated narratives. Since people use new technologies and traditional arts for expressing themselves in so many ways, its crucial for youth to be exposed to powerful ideas relating to consciousness, sustainability and connectivity.
