Event description

Description

Super Field journeys to a diverse range of remote locations over four distinct programs. Join us to learn about the politics and planning, making and editing, residing and visiting that have gone into the production of these sound and video works made in remote locations. Throughout the program we’ll speak with the curators and artists, the exhibition designers as well as the Design Hub team involved in creating Super Field. These are hands-on programs where we’ll be making, recording and listening.

In the midst of undertaking fieldwork in Mänttä, Finland, Madelynne Cornish made a decision to purchase a drone.
Having no experience she decided to equip herself with this complex mechanism consisting of sensors, electronics, software, camera and joysticks. In this workshop she will talk about the accompanying pitfalls and dilemmas of learning to fly a drone in heavily forested areas.

Densities was supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and the Serlachius Museums and Mänttä Art Festival residency program.
