SUPERSENSE worked with Aboriginal stakeholders and artists to interpret and share local Aboriginal stories at TAFE NSW’s new Institute of Applied Technology.

Dharug Yana means ‘Dharug Walk’ and is a suite of interpretation based on Aboriginal technologies, located at a new TAFE facility in Kingswood, the Institute of Applied Technology – Construction (IATC).

We undertook curation in partnership with Traditional Owner Erin Wilkin, research, content creation and design of all interpretation and wayfinding. We determined the curatorial theme of Aboriginal technology and worked with landscape architects to co-locate relevant species, to complement the aims and mission of the new institute. We created a collection of sculptural, physical, digital elements as well as plant life. Our work subverts the typical interpretation image and text format interpretation. At IATC interpretation is a learning tool featuring diagrammatic instructions, digital connections, and instructive videos. For instance, it identifies co-located planted material as a resource and how to craft useful objects from them. showcase the technology. Perforated representations of technological objects are shown at 1:1 scale and artwork by Dharug man Jamie Eastwood is included.
