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 â€¦ (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 â€¦ (Aotearoa) 2014-15 at SCANZ involved waiata sung by Jo Tito, connecting the specific location to the British influences in the work.

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.
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.
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.
As part of Intercreate’s Media Art Project Ko Tatou te Tangata a series of meetings and discussions with local iwi Ngati Tawhirikura were held, co-ordinated by Kura Puke and Stu Foster. One of the consequences of these discussion was that local historian and Puke Ariki Poutiaki Taonga Glen Skipper gave a talk about Te Rewa Rewa pa, at the pa site.
Water Links uses locative media with audio and video capture. It allows the public to actively seek and participate in the art work, as it provides a place for their own creative input on issues of water and peace. The project will utilize locative media so that visitors can identify key locations within the larger […]
The Lifeforce Water Elixir Generating Bowl is a battery-powered Inner Peace Machine and sculpted art piece. The art work is to be set up on a table top sited along a river walkway. The design incorporates a healing crystal, an etched-copper chime and a kiln-fused and slumped glass bowl. The glass bowl is held within […]
Water resistance is a series of sound/music works focusing on water, our environment and the search for peace, created by composers/artists from around the world. An event focusing on peace, awareness, diversity, knowledge and understanding, having water and our environment as the key elements. Acousmatic music and sound art for a peaceful listening. A session […]
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 â€“ 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).
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.
