Future of electronic arts survey

Intercreate survey

Intercreate has released its first survey on electronic and digital arts, looking into the near future (1-5 years) . While we might speculate on which issues are important, debate the virtues of exhibition in gallery or public space, and have preferences about creative development, using a survey allows us to get a strong picture of where our audience and colleagues are on these issues. We want to know what your thoughts on this are. Help us with this process by filling out the survey now – there are 20 multiple choice questions. Please also circulate this survey among your colleagues.

SCANZ2015: meander vs grid

Looking downstream, back toward the main street of New Plymouth. The two trees on the left are marked historic by the Council and must be preserved.

Water falling, Brownian motion and wai: two rocks and a meander – going for a walk with Te Urutahi Waikerepuru to view potential SCANZ art work sites, has led to reflecting on our experience of city, and how this is changed when the traverse follows a river rather than the grid of the streets. Buried culture is revealed, and the multiple histories of place emerge. Quite unlike the paved city, where all has been transformed by industrial processes.

This looks like a collection of boulders, but once was a large marker rock used by local iwi (tribes). It was dynamited in the colonial era

Huatoki walkway: history unveiled It is interesting that following a river cuts across the urban city landscape and the corresponding histories of place. Nature and heritage are often obscured when the experience of place is  dominated by being in buildings, and walking, taking a bus or driving the streets. To follow a river is to […]

Water is essential to survival, revered and respected worldwide for its power, curative and creative abilities. Water as a resource has become intensely politicised and monetised, in contrast to the view that access to fresh water is a fundamental human right. Peace is also essential to the sustainability of humans on Earth. Join us to discuss and put forward positive, connecting views on water and peace that engages our communities. This is the first call for projects.
