ESSAY by LISA CROWLEY, 2004
for MICHELLE MENZIES ‘Passings’ exhibition, NZFA Auckland.
Michelle Menzies’ installation Passings, presents us with images taken of various spaces around Auckland. There are two photos, one of an empty carpark, which looks out over the city port, the other a disused quarry in St Johns. A third work, House Study is a video projection of an old, large villa from an inner city Auckland suburb.
CAROLINE McCAW with many participants, 2004
Testing 1…2…3… was a public artwork event in three Dunedin inner city locations with live text messaging reviews. Unlike the earlier picnic events, visitors could physically walk to each of the three locations, and send and receive text message reviews throughout the period of the event.
