Book Warnayaka Art Centre: Life in the Digital Desert is a collaborative project between the art centre and it’s artists, which involved several emerging digital media artists, art and anthropology scholars like Dr Jennifer Biddle and curator Christian de Lutz, and the artist Gretta Louw. This full-colour book covers the landscape, community, and art of the remote Warlpiri community of Lajamanu. The 100 pages include recent digital artwork by Warnayaka Art Centre and visiting artists, and documentation from the European tour of exhibitions and cultural presentations attended in 2012.

Warnayaka Art Centre in Lajamanu provides local young people with a strong inheritance of cultural and artistic knowledge handed down by daily interaction with their elders. IDAIA wants to share an interactive vision of Warnayaka Art Centre to celebrate the launching of Warnayaka’s new book.
