A milestone virtual reality production, in fact—the first in history to tell an Indigenous Australian story.

Nyarri Nyarri Morgan’s first contact with Western culture came when he witnessed an atomic explosion in the South Australian desert. Half a century later, another technology allows him the chance to show you a firsthand account of the moment when the most destructive application of science and technology ever invented interrupted the Martu generation’s long stewardship of land.

At the invitation of Nyarri and the Martu tribe, artist Lynette Wallworth has sculpted an immersive virtual reality experience that places you at the story’s epicentre. From the songs of the oldest surviving culture on the planet to drones soaring above the red desert, from projectors powered by car batteries to bombs that poison the land, this is a world that finds itself—again—teetering on a precipice of technological change that questions how we will steward it into the future.
