Remembering the Future : Warlpiri Life through the Prism of Drawing, By Melinda Hinkson, Stephen Muecke , single work essay

'Luke Taylor endorses the book on the back cover by saying that it ‘… marks a generational change and a new approach to scholarship.’ But I don't think it does this by displacing any older generation; its new approach to scholarship lies in its intergenerational practices: the contemporary Warlpiri who are shown drawings made by their people for Mervyn Meggitt at Hooker Creek in the 1950s, then respond by making new drawings and interpretations for Melinda Hinkson; Melinda Hinkson who sees how Meggitt has interpreted the 1950s drawings and then interprets his interpretation. The drawings and the words loop around each other, reaching back to the past and forward to the future: Remembering the Future is the enigmatic title of the book.'  (Introduction)
