Naretha Williams | Australia CORVID

When does our perception of perfection become adrift from reality? What is Indigenous knowledge?

From our divine mathematical beginnings and complex ancestral grids, we are the keepers of a perfect blueprint – ourselves. Corvid birds (crows and ravens) are the ancestral totemic lineage of the artist and provide an archetype and language for the artist’s mixed lineage and responsibilities. This sculptural sound installation analyses DNA sequences to create mathematical music, and explores the transmission of ancestral information through nature.
