On The Tracks Of The Honey Ant Dreaming - Sur les traces de la Fourmi à Miel
TJUPI TJUKURRPA WANANYI- On The Tracks Of The Honey Ant Dreaming
Where I comme from in France, I saw a painting : the Dreaming of the Honey Ant. In this Dreaming there are some dots, some crescents, some lines... There is no particular way to look at them. I am overwhelmed but I don’t know why.
These signs are like tracks to follow. They took me along to a red desert, the Australian desert. In Papunya I am now living with the Aborigenes of the Desert. I am asking them about the story of the Honey Ant. They are telling me Tjukurrpa, the Dreaming.

Intangible and invisible, these electromagnetic waves are nowadays everywhere, they have invaded our daily lives.For example, France has about 64 million cell phones subscribers. And over 6 billions worldwide, 87 % of the human population of the Earth. This insidious pollution results in a slow and gradual electrification of the human body. A new disease is emerging: electrohypersensitivity.
