Piccinini Website and Podcast enhances Interaction

March 2006

Patricia Piccinini Website and Podcast enhances audience Interaction at City Gallery WELLINGTON

Patricia Piccinini - In Another Life City Gallery Wellington 19 February - 11 June 2006

Principal Sponsor: Ernst & Young

In an innovative use of new technologies, Saatchi & Saatchi have designed an exciting website and podcast to accompany the exhibition 'Patricia Piccinini- In Another Life'. On the website users can navigate through a selection of key works from the exhibition whilst hearing Patricia Piccinini speak eloquently about them. As a special feature of the site, users can download these artists commentaries onto their Ipod to use as an exhibition audio guide.

This popular podcast gives visitors a fresh and personal perspective into the provocative exhibition. There is no need to miss out if you do not have your own iPod- City Gallery Wellington have iPods loaded with the commentaries for visitors to use while they view the exhibition.

Tom Eslinger, Worldwide Creative Director-Interactive/Emerging Media, Saatchi & Saatchi saw the opportunity to push a few boundaries with the show. 'After meeting Patricia and hearing her talk about her ideas and work, we concentrated on how we could share that very cool experience with people that would visit the show - how can we use interactive as a channel to connect people more closely with Patricia's ideas?'

This was how the idea of creating a podcast and a site based around Patricia discussing her work took shape. Eslinger thought 'How can we use this exciting emerging media to convey ideas and emotions?-Something at the heart of the work we do at Saatchi & Saatchi. We're extremely proud and humbled to be part of such an amazing show.'

The podcast is available at or in the gallery.
