Lay in measures is a new exhibition by Ōtepoti Dunedin-based artists Ed Ritchie and Megan Brady. The exhibition considers how architectural composition unconsciously affects bodily experience, through small-scale interventions of sound, subtle sculptural installations and replicated furnishings.

"I started making this work when my kuia passed. I traveled home to live at her house for a year. I wanted to be close to her again. A story she told me that has stuck with me: the account of her father’s drowning on the Tongariro River in Tūrangi. I have since visited the spot again and again.

How does time pass in a day, in a year, in a life? Within Māori cosmology, Māui and his brothers famously bound Tama-nui-te-rā, onwatcher to our humanity. Before, it was cold and Māori were starved of time. Perhaps our movements were slow. Inhibited by an endless night."

Fullfilm Fest exists to hold spaces full of humanity, wisdom, beauty, awe, love, authenticity, education, communion and transcendence.​

May the stories screened fill the audience with meaning, connection and a wholly new perspective.

May the light of the filmmaker be experienced without judgement or expectation and instead with the acceptance of experimentation and diversity.

May the collective viewing shared be fulfilling to the eyes, senses and souls of the viewer.
