The word ‘immersive’ has always been problematic for me. I think because in some instances it has been anaesthetised by art speak (and I am guilty of this as much as anyone). A video installation or a sculptural installation is often described as ‘immersive’ simply because it takes up a large space, or uses a variety of layered materials, or bright, confrontational colours, or loud sound, or fast-paced, flickering images.

Installation Shot: The Destroyed Word by Santiago Sierra

CRITICS & CRITICISM: This month Mark Amery & guests address the vexed issue of Criticism in New Zealand and Australia. Has the proliferation of new art forms made it difficult to critique art? How do we develop bold young critical voices? Should we fight for space in the shrinking profit margins of the newspaper? Should we simply pitch our tent in a friendly corner of the internet?
