Step into the digital playground of Blockwith, where you create your own avatar on your smartphone then watch as it interacts and builds an ever-changing landscape with others on the larger-than-life Digital Stage in Aotea Square.
Highly visual and vivid, Blockwith is the creation of French artist Guillaumit and coder Yann Van der Cruyssen, who have combined their love of bold graphics, bright colours and quirky humour in an interactive experience that’s both playful and filled with meaning.
Encouraging interaction, diversity and engagement, Blockwith will be launched at 6:30pm on Tuesday 21 May, and then run every day for at least 30 mins at 10am, 12:30pm, 3:30pm, 6:30pm* and 9:30pm*.
* Late night screenings subject to Digital Stage close time. Please see the daily schedule for more info here.
Meet the artist Guillaumit at #FutureSlam, May 21 at Auckland Museum, where he will join other guest speakers and panellists to discuss and explore the impact of digital technology on the arts and culture experience.
This is a free, non-ticketed event.
