Discover this curious online art wonder as it weaves and loops through Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau via street posters, your phone, and a special, one-off event on the
Auckland Live Digital Stage.
DISASTROUS FORMS is a body of ceramic and clay works archived on an online platform that explore natural disasters, natural history, and archiving. The artist, Teresa Peters, was inspired by a field trip to Pompeii with conceptual artist Mark Dion, Auckland Museum’s online natural history collections, and conversations with curator Dina Jezdic. From volcanoes, corals, and fossils to the quartz in your mobile phone, this work links the notion of collection to collective consciousness. As Walter Benjamin observed, collections are never finished.
Don’t miss this stunning visual event, as the history of technology brings clay and ceramics to life on the big screen.
