A story Nyarri Nyarri Morgan had been waiting to tell his whole life

When Nyarri Nyarri Morgan witnessed nuclear bomb testing in the Maralinga, he came into contact with western culture for the first time. It was a complete collision between technology and one of the oldest cultures in the world. The possibilities of virtual reality inspired artist Lynette Wallworth so much that, upon meeting Nyarri, she knew that it would be the perfect kind of immersive technology to share his story. The artist discusses how the virtual reality experience Collisions was made and the journey from concept to exhibition.
