LUX at Lunch

LUX at Lunch

Museum of Wellington City & Sea
Friday 22 August at 12.30pm
Entry by koha

Two new light installations- part of the Wellington LUX Festival will feature at Museum of Wellington City & Sea from Thursday 21 August to Sunday 31 August. Wellington artists, Anthony Nevin and Natalie McLeod will discuss their work on Friday 22 August at 12.30pm as part of the Museum’s Lunchtime Sessions.

Lunchtime Sessions at the Museum will feature a range of exciting and diverse acts or talks during the lunch hour of the Monday to Friday work week.

Nevin will discuss the design and development of his new piece, “Kraken”, which will appear on the outside of the Museum. The work is inspired by bioluminescent sea creatures, where his piece translates the human voice through fleeting curves and arcs of light. People are invited to transform their relationships with each other into collaborative playful acts of noisemaking.

McLeod will also discuss her work “Staurosira Construens”. Her piece is a laser cut and etched repeating pattern derived from scanning electron micrographs of freshwater diatoms found in New Zealand. This work seeks to promote the value and complexity of repeat pattern design for screen-printed textiles by applying traditional knowledge to the use of new materials.

Head of Learning and Programmes, Rachel Ingram says, “The Wellington LUX Festival is such an exciting time of year for Wellington. We’re excited to have both Anthony and Natalie display their work and we look forward to hosting a discussion on their process.”

When walking past the Museum, people can view the light installations. Entry into the talk on Friday is by koha. All are welcome to come along and participate in the Wellington LUX Festival featured at the Museum.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
