Screens invites you to explore a compelling new work from artist John
Ward Knox.

"The ancients built Valdrada on the shores of a lake, with houses all
verandas one above the other, and high streets whose railed parapets
look out over the water. Thus the traveller, arriving, sees two
cities: one erect above the lake, and the other reflected,
upside-down."

In "Untitled", John Ward Knox probes the surface of our user
interfaces, drawing out the pointer convention and shifting it gently
from instructor to mark-maker. Unfolding twice, four, eight times on
itself, each gesture is flipped and inverted, a reversed movement
playing out in another screen-space.

Also on Screens is "Rain", a game-work from Seung Yul Oh inviting
play, recently exhibited at Artspace, Auckland.

Finally, don't miss the ongoing project from US photographer William
Boling, inviting users to dialogue with him using text snippets and
snapshots.

Thanks as always for your support of Screens. Sharing and discussion welcome.

Best,
Luke Munn and Jeff Nusz
