EZONE UWA will transform the way we educate our students, undertake our research and engage with our community.
Once complete it will equip Western Australia and the world with engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians who can solve far-ranging problems that arise in multiple disciplines. A revolutionary research, teaching and learning facility, it will combine the talent, technology and equipment required to make a real and lasting difference.
Dr Darren Jorgensen, Senior Lecturer at UWA’s Design School, became interested in Indigenous art when a friend came back from the desert with a roll of paintings.
Just returned from Europe, when Darren saw the Papunya Tula paintings from a remote Aboriginal community he realised they were as remarkable as the paintings he had been studying in Paris.
Darren was in his 30s then and embarrassed to admit he’d missed one of the most interesting aspects of his own country. It was this cultural awakening that shaped much of what he researches and teaches today.
