One Road is a large scale installation of multitouch screens that forms the signature piece of Yiwarra Kuju, an exhibition about the Canning Stock Route in Western Australia which was initially shown at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra in July 2010.
Visitors are invited to explore the history of the Canning Stock Route through the paintings and stories of the indigenous artists who live in the Country near the route, or who took part in a return to Country expedition in 2008.
With the map produced by surveyor Alfred Canning in 1908 forming the background, videos, images, and paintings reveal themselves as visitors navigate through the 10-screen arrangement that roughly follows the shape of the route.
After its initial run at the National Museum of Australia, Yiwarra Kuju travelled around Australia for a period of 3 years. It was exhibited at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in Western Australia, the Australian Museum in Sydney and the Queensland Museum in Brisbane, Queensland.
