What is your most memorable experience of art?

Last year at the CIRCUIT symposium Sean Kerr presented his talk via desk lamp and I’ve just finished watching the series Stranger Things, which if you’ve seen it (everyone should) this will sound familiar (so maybe that’s why it’s fresh on my mind atm), but it was pretty great watching this lamp discuss the activation of objects in a lecture theatre of people.

I, Daniel Blake and the Welfare State

: Recently at the NZIFF I was fortunate enough to see Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake, this year’s winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes. By the end of the film nearly everybody seemed to be in mourning and most of the people seated around me were sniffling and wiping their eyes. I,
