Aboriginal Matrix

Aboriginal version of the MatrixThis illustration is one in which I envisioned the story of the Matrix as interpreted in the visual language of Australian Aborigines.

To the average Aborigine, the story of the Matrix would not seem very odd. Though there are as many aboriginal tribes as there are Native American tribes, there is a common theme in their stories, one of the Dreamtime, a realm from which all reality comes and goes. The Sentinels of the Matrix would simply be the Creators of the Dreamtime. The symbols for men, women and children take the place of the binary ones and zeroes commonly used to illustrate working code, and represent the comings and goings of people.
