Cardinia Cultural Centre’s Crush Space is transforming into an abstract interactive digital artwork exploring the natural landscape of Australia in this National Reconciliation Week.   
 
Through the eyes of indigenous woman and artist Jadah Pleiter, and digital installation/animation specialist Homie, the duo will engage the community through their experimental work which recognises indigenous culture. 
 
This interactive digital artwork, Our Tracks and Traces, is a modern exploration of indigenous art through the integration of traditional artistic mediums, animation and sound. 
 
Our Tracks and Traces interactive installation will officially launch at Cardinia Cultural Centre on Friday 28 May at 3pm.
 
The Cardinia Cultural Centre Crush Space is located in the foyer area between the Theatre and new Art Gallery.
 
If you are interested in attending the official launch, please see the Facebook event for more information.
 
About the artists
Jadah (nee Milroy) is a multi-disciplinary Palyku artist currently residing in Victoria. With a writing and performance background in theatre, radio and film, her work has recently turned to visual art with involvement in the Gods Dreaming project. 
 
Her work crosses multiple artforms, media and subject matter with a current focus on exploring the politics of spirit and identity, using the image of ‘self’ and ‘country’ as a reflective tool. Influenced from a young age by the work of her aunt Sally Morgan and step-mother Jody Broun, Jadah has nonetheless developed a distinct personal style that is both poignant and rich with meaning. 
 
Homie is working at Cardinia Shire Council as a Multimedia Specialist, and has a Masters of Animation, Games & Interactivity which focused on creating engaging and refined generative works. 
 
His primary responsibilities are to conceptualise and develop digital interactive installations at Cardinia Cultural Centre. With his current projects, Homie is excelling in the integration of traditional arts and new-media technologies.
