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.

Digitized 3D Objects and Audio Signal Convergence by Claire Brunet, Susan Fryberg and Toby Gifford

Salmon computer model

In this project recordings of water are modified through signal processing mechanisms derived from digitized 3D forms appropriated from nature, which themselves are transformed and projected on a white fishing net surface.

New Plymouth spatial interventions by Allan Giddy and team

Three artists resident in Sydney but originating from England and New Zealand will work for two weeks with the New Plymouth central city area to enliven it for one or two evenings prior to the SCANZ walking symposium. Water is central to the site (between St Aubyns and Ariki) and the works focus their visual and sonic interventions around these features. In this context installation itself becomes a performative act with artists working within the site of an intended audience.

Words for Water by Tracey Benson

01Benson_heart

Water may seem ubiquitous, but it has some rather uncommon properties. At the atomic level, water can influence how life and landscapes form, such as how water moves through a plant and how rivers meander around bends. It is also the only chemical that be formed in three states – vapour, liquid and solid.

My focus will be on expanding an ongoing project that uses augmented media tools to evoke a meditative work focusing on the concept water. Stage 1 of “Words for Water” was presented at the MARart exhibition held as part of ISMAR2013 (The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality).

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.

huatoki-walkway3

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 […]
