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.
