Planet Obsolescence is an audio-visual experiment in low fi hacking, using electronic waste in an exercise of controlled information.
The interactive installation re-purposes modified walls of discarded LCD screens to conceal and reveal content, changing audiences’ engagement with space and augmenting reality.
Join us for the opening preview of Planet Obsolescence on Tue 12 March from 4:30 - 6:30pm.
Erica Sklenars is a New Zealand based artist working across the fields of video art, installation, performance and intervention. Her practice is often collaborative, and explores modes of communication amongst various social groups and new media, as well as DIY adaptation or hacking of technology.
Often using humour, Sklenars’ work subverts and contentedly inhabits personal human failures, and plays with future dystopian themes evident in current daily life. Sklenars regularly collaborates with musicians and sound artists under the name Lady Lazer Light, and exhibits and tours at galleries, festivals and music venues throughout New Zealand, Asia, and Europe. Sklenars has an MFA from Massey University and currently lives and works in Wellington, NZ.
