Better late than never ONE DAY SCUPTURE

Hello, well way back in late March I had an amazing invitation to travel to Wellington New Zealand and deliver a paper on the Aesthetics of Generosity to the international ONE DAY SCULPTURE symposium. The symposium was at the end of a one year project by Massy University's Litmus Reasearch project. Litmus invited UK curator Claire Doherty as their first research fellow and she conceived of this project. The ODS project consisted of commissions for over a dozen international and N.Z. artists to develop public interventions somewhere in N.Z.
Each project was manifest for 24 hours at some point in N.Z. over the year.

The symposium was an opportunity for participants to explore the ideas behind the artist's work, the notion of contemporary art, sculpture, and temporality, and from my point of view participation as well. It was a great honor for me to be included and a really stimulating and exciting experience as well.

Here is a link where you can download my paper as well as dig deeper and learn about the project as a whole and explore the commissioned works.

I love Wellington, it is one of my favourite cities and the conference sounded great! Now I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, equally as interesting...
