Featuring:
Samin Son
“If a shooting star could travel upwards that would be Samin Son. Wellington has always been a cautious town, tending more towards the reserved than the outlandish. So perhaps there were no defence mechanisms in place for restraining someone of such concentrated intensity. The Korean-born Wellington-based artist has been making a name for himself in 2012 with a series of performances and exhibitions, and a ubiquitous online presence.” – Ron Hanson (http://www.thebigidea.co.nz/news/interviews/2012/jun/118176-catch-a-shooting-star )
Koi

James Crane is one of Wellington’s most prolific and consistently interesting musicians, artists and filmmakers, creating soundscapes of ‘thrilling fucked up shit’, performances are rare so this is not something to miss out on.

Wellington musicians Timothy J. Andrew, Rupert Hunter, and Rachel McGonigal create violent, sexy noise and often self-destructive spectacles.

Game Review: Midsomer Murders Meets First Year Philosophy

Developed by The Chinese Room, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture sees the player exploring what appears to be a recently abandoned idyllic English village trying to figure out where everybody's gone. Spoiler: they've gone to the rapture. (On a serious note, this review contains plot spoilers.) More>>

It was really after his move to Wellington, to Victoria University, that it became apparent that Sir Paul Cllaghan was much more than an eminent physicist... More>>

Francis Cook: Weekend SportzMania! All Blacks! Netball!

Sports were on all weekend. I normally don’t write about sports but with Richie McCaw tipped to be the next Prime Minister, and Colin Craig arguing sports are almost as important as politics, I thought “what better time to start!” More>>
