We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
Timescapes is a unique project at the WA Museum, Boola Bardip Old Gaol site.
It’s a visually rich, creative response to the objects and items of the museum archives brought to life on the architecture of the gaol walls.
A cyclical work inspired by the six seasons of the Nyoongar year, Timescapes weaves a collection of narratives inspired by deep archaeological time and traditional Aboriginal knowledge, through colonial history, right up to modern art and technology.
Bringing together a diverse creative team including Animation Director Chris Edser, Archival Consultant Sari Braithwaite and composer Orkheomai (Brendan Woithe), Timescapes is a kaleidoscopic and mesmerising look at Western Australia, exploring its complicated social and ecological past.
