Developing the culture to create a sustainable civilization
Feb 1stâ€“3rd, 2013 â€“ New Plymouth, New Zealand
SCANZ (Solar Circuit Aotearoa New Zealand)Â is New ZealandÂ´s premier art, technology, culture and ecology event and involves a symposium, creative residency, and public events and exhibitions. Occurring biennially, it has typically involved a mix of Aotearoa New Zealand and international artists, producers, theorists and curators.Â SCANZ 2013: 3rd natureÂ will be theÂ fourth eventÂ and will be organized by Ian Clothier, Trudy Lane, and Nina Czegledy ofÂ Intercreate, in partnership with aligned organizations within the arts and sciences and with tangata whenua.
SCANZ 2013 3rd natureÂ seeks to develop a fresh space, carrying memes from previous SCANZ events (which have all had an emphasis on environment) and other Intercreate projects that have involved scientists, indigenous peoples and artists working together. The aim is to build new knowledge and establish legacies around this work, unencumbered by old perspectives and now distant categories.
We ignore the environmental crisis at our peril. Integrating the indigenous perspective, creative, environmental and scientific views on the environment is essential for continued human habitation of the planet. From these trajectories, it is possible to conceive of a fresh hybrid space, composed of overlapping elements.
