“Auras” for “Words for Water”
As promised, here are the map images from Transreal Topologies exhibition that will trigger video via an augmented media application – Aurasma. See the instructions to access the ‘auras’ below the images.
The map images document an aerial journey of the Murray River and identify the river as a body by naming each image as a chakra.
