Destination Pioneer City


A video made in collaboration with film-maker Simon Ward and commissioned by CoLab (AUT University), Destination Pioneer City introduces future settlers to some of the features Pioneer City has to offer.

The first full version was targeted at mid-flight passengers and screened on all international Air New Zealand flights in early 2013 as part of their in-flight entertainment programme [duration 06:22].

A revised version, targeted at land-based audiences, has been screened in the 2013 New Zealand International Film Festival and as part of a Pioneer City installation in the exhibition Among The Machines at Dunedin Public Art Gallery (6 Jul-3 Nov 2013).
