Today is day two of a three day intensive masterclass Craig is holding with 9 artists from the Cairns region. The masterclass is being held at Bonemap’s Emerald End Art Camp in Mareeba, just out of Cairns in the Atherton Tablelands. With Coordination assistance from experienced Digital Media Program Manager Annemarie Kohn, and technical support from established Graphic artist Steven Thomasson, the masterclass is a highly intensive technical and creative learning experience for all participants. Our sincere thanks go to Russell Milledge and Rebecca Youdell, co-owners of the Art Camp and founders of hybrid media group Bonemap, for generously allowing the Digital Odyssey masterclass to be held at their amazing venue. Check out more information about Bonemap here.

Images and video footage of the masterclass are being taken and will be displayed on the website in the coming weeks. For now though, displayed above are images from the first Digital Odyssey masterclass held in the town of Ruakkan, South East of Adelaide near the mouth of the Murray River, with 6 members of the local Aboriginal community. Raukkan was the home town of preacher, inventor and writer David Unaipon (of the Ngarrindjeri people) and his imagery and writings offered rich material which was interpreted and incorporated into the many projections created as part of the masterclass.
