Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Yuendumu Doors

Can we create interactive versions of famous Aboriginal artworks to help more people understand the stories behind the images?

The Yuendumu Doors, painted by five Warlpiri artists, depict Dreaming stories. The doors were originally painted for classrooms at the local school in Yuendumu in the 1980s and are now precious items in the South Australian Museum collection.

Sandpit worked with SA Museum and Yuendumu artists to create digital versions of these artworks. Visitors can use their smartphones as cursors on projected images of the Yuendumu doors, selecting and exploring specific aspects of each image. Rich content appears in the palm of the visitor’s hand.
