Greetings all. The final performances of Interdigitate are on this Friday the 5th, featuring Sue Gallagher, Emil McAvoy, Damian Stewart and Rob Appierdo.

INTERDIGIATE New Media Art Installation and Performance Friday 5th May 8pm $ 15 on the door

8pm: Sue Gallagher Presents 'Space Invader'

A piece concerned with light-ness as an approach to the conceptualization and realisation of space. This is a dynamic thought provoking 1.5 x 8 m floor based installation that reflects on the beauty of light along with the intangible qualities of what installation and performance based art represents. Sue Gallagher is an artist working across performance, moving image and architecture.

8.45pm : Emil McAvoy and Damian Stewart present 'Reciprocity'

An improvised collaborative audio visual piece. By recording the performance space it becomes a self aware organism reading and writing itself, performing itself into existence. Through multiple view points constructed by placing various camera's and microphones throughout the venue, they make the audience the content of the work. This promises to be a visually immersive piece, utilizing up to 8 projections.

9.30pm : Rob Appierdo presents 'Beautiful City'

Incorporating live dance, music and video performance, Beautiful City explores the clash between urban and rural N.Z. It compares the energy of the city (through improvised dance) with the open territory of the haunting Desert Road. Robert Appierdo has worked as a video artist for over 10 years, recently providing visuals for Rhian Sheehan both here and in Australia. Rob has collaborated extensively with local theatre companies culminating in live video projections for ‘A ClockWork Orange’ at the AK05 Festival.
