Back to Signature Installations

Immerse yourself in the stories, symbols and knowledge of Aboriginal culture as you wander through a beautiful animated sequence of curated artworks projected on to the sands of Desert Park.

A giant, seamless canvas on Country, let the sand trickle through your fingers and discover how each of the seven artworks, by artists from six different art centres in the Central and Western Desert region, were brought to life.

Benedict Stevens, traditional owner of Mparntwe (Alice Springs), welcomed artists from around the region to showcase their work in this special place.
