Virtual Awaba

Virtual Songlines, in collaboration with Lake Macquarie Council, to make 3 virtual reality experience, designed for the google cardboard and other VR capable mobile devices. The experiences told three very distinct dreamtime stories of the local indigenous people of the Lake Macquarie area. They told the story of Niridiba based around Moon island, the story of Malangbula based around Swansea Heads, and finally Kurrurkurraan based around the area of Blackhalls park petrified forest. Each story gave the local community an insight to the life and traditions of those who inhabited the area 250 years ago, and acted as a cultural time machine that bridged the generational gap of those who still live in Lake Macquarie.
