(come on let’s walk together)

Follow the Companion Sky Spirit through a virtual walk on Country – emerging from the depths of subterranean soils to a ground-level play space, ascending to meet the celestial clouds.

kajoo yannaga is at once a cinematic story, an immersive two-channel projection and a gamified journey guided by First Nations knowledges. Through real-time motion tracking mapping body movement, connect to place and be transported to a vivid Spirit realm sprinkled with signs and signals for those who look to see. With self-determination and generosity in mind, the completion of each circular story cycle pulls you back to start again. Leave kajoo yannaga with a newfound understanding of our shared responsibilities for united, intergenerational healing.

Lead artist April Phillips is a Wiradjuri-Scottish woman of the galari/kalari peoples, based on the Yuin Nation. Her practice is aligned with representations of First Nations futurism, intergenerational healing and digital experimentation to celebrate the potential of computer art for a new world.
