The project is a virtual reality documentary that transforms interviews about the daily lives and dreams for the future of four young Aboriginal people into virtual reality paintings.
Future Dreaming is a virtual reality film starring imagined future versions of Nelson and Max Coppin, Maverick Eaton and Alison Lockyer (all from Roebourne, WA), who will guide viewers around their lives on the fictional planet Daya over a 20-year period.
While Maverick Eaton created his world based from his nan's block in the remote Pilbara station of Pippingarra, Nelson Coppin visualised his world depicting the Pilbara landscape of red dust, spinifex and ghost gums with trains carrying iron ore traversing across his traditional homeland.
