SKA Shared Sky Exhibition
Shared Sky brings together Aboriginal Australian and South African artists in a collaborative exhibition celebrating ancient cultural wisdom. The exhibition embodies the spirit of the international science and engineering collaboration that is the SKA project itself, bringing together many nations around two sites in Australia and South Africa to study the same sky. Shared Sky connects indigenous artists working in remote communities from either side of the Indian Ocean that have ancient cultural connections to the two sites where the SKA will be located. Shared Sky reflects the SKA’s One Sky concept – that no borders exist in the sky and that the night sky is an increasingly scarce natural resource that belongs to and is shared by all humanity. The image above is an acrylic on linen painting by Wajarri artist Wendy Jackamarra, representing the Milky Way, the stars and clouds. (Text credit: SKAO.
