Dunedin is being reinvented this weekend. The 2013 Aotearoa
Digital Artists symposium has brought artists to the heart of
the city to redefine its art.
The eighth annual symposium, ''Space: Network: Memory'',
features panels, talks and art installations by New Zealand
and international digital artists and academics which
re-examine the contemporary city and its networks and
''The idea of a transitional city emerged from what happened
in Christchurch and how it is impacting on the rest of the
country,'' Aotearoa Digital Artists symposium project manager
Vicki Smith, of Hari Hari, said.
''All cities are transitional. You have that happening here
in Dunedin at the moment with the historic warehouse
precinct, which is an area businesses are moving back into
and enlivening again.''
The first featured artist, Birgit Bachler (28), of
Knittelfeld, Austria, has installed her di4lo9 artwork
at Turboweb in Vogel St. The symposium runs until tomorrow.
