Testing 1…2…3…


Conceived and organized by Caro McCaw (and a large community of artists and organisers, and it would be hard to list all the artists that were involved. There were also many institutions and galleries that were supportive.)

Key Locations
The Octagon, and other locations around Dunedin

cell phones, text messages, food

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. The event began in the Octagon, in the centre of town, where visitors registered their cell phone numbers, and received a free picnic lunch. During the event registered participants sent and received reviews of local performances and events.
