Language Preservation and 3D Animations: Monash Country Lines Archive

A/Prof John Bradley, Mr Brent McKee and Dr Shannon Faulkhead

Wednesday 18th March 2015

seminar-countrylines-featureThe Monash Country Lines Archive (MCLA) is working with 3D animation as a method for intergenerationalknowledge sharing, keeping language alive, and to reconnect language and its people. Through the development of partnerships with Indigenous communities across Australia, MCLA  is using cutting edge 3D animation technologies to assist in the preservation of their knowledge and language. These animations provide material for Elders and younger generations to share knowledge. The affective responses to seeing technology re-represent back to them stories that have deep cultural resonances, has resulted in growing interest worldwide.
