talented kiwis

It sometimes feels that we're a bit isolated from the rest of the world here in little old New Zealand, and that it's a lot harder for Kiwi artists to get noticed internationally, but, when you take a closer look, Kiwis are making it big all over the show. Even in just the last few months, I've been made aware of Cathy Carter being a finalist in the Sydney Head On Photo Festival and then taking her exhibition to New York. Then, there's The International Collaboration Project, one half of which is Kiwi Deb Young, who's been working with American Francisco Diaz and is having their combined works seen around the world. And when you check out the news section of this issue, you'll read all about Ata Te Tangata,…

five minutes with michael miller

The SAE Creative Media Institute has appointed a new film department coordinator — academic and film-maker Michael Miller, who will head the institute's Bachelor of Film Arts degree and Diploma in Film Arts. Miller, who hails from Utah in the US, first came to New Zealand in 2002 as a 23-yearold, backpacking and hitchhiking his way around the country. His Kiwi experience stayed etched in his heart, and he returned in 2003 with a view to staying permanently. Apart from a stint in Japan at Tokyo's Waseda University to study film and television for a year (where he met his wife-to-be, fellow American Lisa), he's been in New Zealand ever since. Miller completed the final aspects of his bachelor's degree in film and television at the University of Auckland, and quickly followed…

whangarei gets the go ahead for camera obscura sculpture

Photographer Diane Stoppard, architect Felicity Christian, and sculptor Trish Clarke have joined forces to work on the Camera Obscura — Whangarei Sculpture project.

The sculpture will be located on Pohe Island looking towards the Te MatauPohe lift bridge, and the council will cover its ongoing management and maintenance. Stoppard said, "The camera-obscura project is really exciting — we have been working on it for a year now ... [and] we are gearing up for a Kickstarter crowd-fund in November ... We intend the camera obscura to be an…
