Window on a Shadow

(0)

A window near a library on a campus somewhere deep in the South Pacific casts a shadow - a virtual shadow. The window is a gallery space, established by students at Auckland's Elam School of Fine Arts to take art out of the gallery context; and its shadow is a web site. Both are offered as a breeding ground for experimentation and discussion. Since launching in May, the site has displayed poetry, digital video, macabre Shockwave, and Italian food. Peer in to explore these quirky worlds and the characters who inhabit them. Window dressings change frequently here, but there's an archive where one will find, for example, Turnbaby bringing Edison's early experiments with moving pictures into the 21st century. - Helen Varley Jamieson
