Kartogrifa at Pimpama Secondary College

As part of the Designer in Residence program I am doing with Pimpama Secondary College, Kartogrifa will be housed at their library over the next couple months.

This is super exciting as we will have a chance to workshop through Kartogrifa with the students over time, absorbing all the pedagogy elelments of the event!


Footage screengrab shots from Kartogrifa In-Flux opening night

In time, Kartogrifa In-Flux opening event will be consolidated into a short video package, so please stay tuned. Going through all the moving footage has made me extremely excited about making the video. There are patterns that can be noticed throughout the night, people touching certain objects, moving in slow and contemplative ways. These screengrabs from the video files are an attempt to show how people interacted with the event. I am sincerely looking forward to taking the Kartogrfia In-Flux event elsewhere; to schools, libraries, festivals and galleries and keeping the conversation going. The beauty will be in how these different environments affect the way people interact with Kartogrifa…Will it be the same as the shots suggest, or, in front of different audiences such as children, or academics, will people interact in different ways? No matter what, Kartogrifa, his story, and the conversation he brings to light, lives on.

Event was a great success

The Kartogrifa In-Flux opening event on Friday night was a great success, thanks to everyone for showing up! I had about 400 people come through the door and most people engaged with and read all the narrative. Here are a few shots, I will be posting a more refined summary shortly.
