MIC Toi Rerehiko Gallery Opening
Friday, 4th March 2011
6:00pm - 8:00pm

A Collection of Video and New Media Works By Josephine Starrs and Leon  
running through 25 March

MIC Toi Rerehiko presents...
Incompatible Elements is an immersive experience, using video  
projection soundscape and photographic imagery to explore the  
complexities of the relationship humans have with the natural  
environment and their interaction to it.
Josephine Starrs and Leon Cmielewski’s video and new media works have  
been shown extensively in Australia and internationally. Previous  
installations have explored issues of migration, territorial  
boundaries, conflict commodities and human displacement.
For Incompatible Elements, Starrs and Cmielewski have used pixel  
manipulation and embed poetic texts into animated satellite images of  
landscapes at particular risk from global warming. The failure of  
nations in 2009 to reach an agreement at the Climate Change Conference  
in Copenhagen has highlighted the huge gap between the scientific  
consensus, and the political and public perceptions of the issues.  
Responding to climate change in ways that are mythical, biblical and  
chemical, Incompatible Elements questions the urban perception that  
humans exist apart from, or outside of, the natural environment.
