Shannon Novak and Jeff Nusz: Flight of the Magnolia

01 December 2018 - 10 March 2019

Te Tuhi is a living, breathing organism; a seemingly inanimate object with life force. Flight of the Magnolia is a collaborative work between Shannon Novak and Jeff Nusz that uses code to catalogue this energy flowing through the body of the gallery. By means of monitoring visitors and staff activity through security cameras, movements will be visualised in real time on screen using a language of abstract forms and aural elements similar to how medical diagnostic equipment might scan a body to reveal hidden matter. The work extends beyond the screen at Te Tuhi into digital space, inviting online viewers to experience an ever-evolving composition.
