Supported by ArtsSA, MOD. was able to offer a three day in-person Masterclass in Augmented Reality (AR) in June this year.

This masterclass aimed to invest in digital capabilities and exploration that will enable the pathways for more First Nations led content and innovation within the digital and technological landscape in South Australia and nationally.

This NAIDOC week visit our Studio spaces for an exhibition of work from three of the participants: Kat Bell, Elijah Bravington and Raymond Zada.

Mother’s Tears (2024) Kat Bell

Mother’s Tears is a multimedia work with two underlying meanings: the first is that of the profound love and pain of a mother who has loved, held, lost and grieved a child. It is also about our relationship with Mother Nature and how she responds to our impact upon her. Her grief in the wake of human forces and the tears she sheds.

Kat Bell is a First Nation Multimedia Creative living on Erawirung Country (Riverland SA). She describes her practice as a journey of learning, healing, storytelling, sharing & of conversations (had and to be had). She draws inspiration from her Aboriginal cultures, life on the Murray River, & her experiences living & traveling to many parts of the world. These experiences are reimagined in her art through bursts of colour, maximalist content & playful symbology within a contemporary context. Kat is also known for writing poetry that accompanies her physical artworks, as extensions to the pieces of art & the stories she is sharing in the artworks.

Can a 65,000+ year old culture survive the 21st Century? Blakprint for Success is a short film that examines how important culture and education is in providing a dynamic future for First Nations peoples from a local Kaurna perspective.
