Shannon Novak improvised musical performance

Shannon Novak improvised musical performance, artist talk and augmented reality app demonstration

1pm, Saturday 24 February, The Atrium, Pātaka Art + Museum

For the last month the full height windows of Pātaka’s atrium have become a multi-colored lantern of interconnected geometric forms. Created by award-winning New Zealand artist Shannon Novak, this specially-designed installation floods the atrium with colours and shapes, and also fills your ears with sound composed by Shannon, via a free app that you can download to accompany the artwork.

At 1pm Shannon Novak will play an improvised musical response on a grand piano to an augmented reality experience of his floor-to-ceiling NEXUS installation at Pātaka. After his performance Shannon will describe his creative processes and demonstrate the augmented reality app he has created to bring details of NEXUS to life.

Shannon is also exhibiting a digitally augmented artwork as part of The Performance Arcade 2018, on Wellington’s Waterfront 23-25 February and 1-4 March.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
