10 years of Semi-Permanent conference inspiration

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE // 28.04.14

10 years of Semi-Permanent conference inspiration to be celebrated this Friday and Saturday, 2/3 May.

This Friday morning the 10th Semi-Permanent conference begins at Aotea Centre to inspire, impress and challenge those who have signed up for the legendary two-day event.

Hosted by MC Te Radar the first day includes photojournalist Ashley Gilbertson, who’s assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan have won international awards, after beginning his career photographing skateboarders in Melbourne; talented female duo behind Berlin- based fashion label Augustin Teboul, who have worked with everyone from Yohji Yamamoto to Jean Paul Gaultier before coming together to create their own label which sits between ready-to-wear and haute couture.

Day One also includes the legendary mastery of Golan Levin, a two-time TED speaker who was named one of “50 Designers Shaping the Future” by Fast Company Magazine in 2012. An artist and engineer, who applies creative twists to digital technologies, highlighting our relationship with machines, Levin is followed by the undeniable graphic design prowess of Abbott Miller. A partner of Pentagram, the world’s largest independent design consultancy based in New York, Miller’s has collaborated with a number of artists such as Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik and has desinged books for The Metropolitcan Museum of Art, including Superheroes and Punk: From Chaos to Couture.

This taster of the range of disciplines from four out of the seven speakers on day one is representative of the hand-picked creatives who’s interests are as varied as their post codes.

Organiser Simon Velvin believes it’s his best line-up yet and he’s excited to be presenting a workshop series for attendees alongside the conference, as well as live performances by some of Auckland’s best, including singer Janine and the Mixtape.

“Later in the year it’s Wellington’s turn again but for now I’m happy to be presenting Kiwis like film maker Niki Caro and architect Nat Cheshire (NZ Home of the Year 2014 winner), alongside VFX specialists from Frame Store in NYC, the company behind the visual effects for the Oscar-winning film GRAVITY, right here in Auckland.”

“If you haven’t clocked this short, sharp inspiration hit I encourage anyone with an interest in the world around them to come and investigate what Semi-Permanent is all about.”

A limited number of tickets are still available.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
