Allan Giddy at SCANZ

The installation on the foreshore attracted much comment from passersby.

Alternative energy pioneer Allan Giddy exhibited two works at SCANZ2015. The first was the night time projection of Night swimmer onto a small stream in Pukekura Park. The second, England Expects … (Aotearoa) 2014-15 was installed on the foreshore by the Huatoki outlet. The installation is solar powered, and uses three mics on the tips of fishing lines – which turns them into aeolian harps (which are blown by the wind). The audio created is mixed with the UK weather forecast, and a recorded response by violinist Alison Blunt of the London Improvisers Orchestra. A special implementation of England Expects … (Aotearoa) 2014-15 at SCANZ involved waiata sung by Jo Tito, connecting the specific location to the British influences in the work.
