An online conversation curated and hosted by Mark Williams for the 2022 Screen Studies Association of New Zealand conference The Materiality of Screen Media.
This conversation discusses each artists individual practice, shared affinities and the following specific works;
Nova Paul's Rākau (2022) is a 16mm film of Pūriri trees. Paul created a film developer solution from foliage discarded by the trees themselves, bringing the image from negative to postive, creating a cyclical portrait of the Pūriri.
Jamie Berry’s Whakapapa Algorhythms (2021) is a montage of archival home movies, recent digital animation and a constant pulsing score which was written by sequencing the artists own DNA.
Jae Hoon Lee's Dark Matter (2022) continues his preoccupation with new technology as a vehicle to transform organic matter, presenting a series of pulsing coals, crystal and other mineral deposits.
