Step into a digital Dreamtime envisioned by four young Aboriginal Australians. Drawing on the powerful traditional practice of mental visualisation in which past, present and future come together, this quartet of inspired minds has crafted a time-warping reality bubble where futuristic big-rigs cross the Pilbara and offworld colonies are powered by emus on treadmills.

Future Dreaming sees emerging artists Ali Lockyer, Maverick Eaton and Nelson and Maxie Coppin collaborating with mentor Sutu (Stuart Campbell) to conjure a phantasmagoric experience that harnesses the latest in motion capture technology and VR design. These young people from remote Western Australia have dreamed big with results that will take you out of this world.

As part of the Yijala Yala Project run by Big hART, this generous and adventurous immersive work will leave a sense of wonder long after the experience is over.

Director: Sutu Campbell
