A radical departure from traditional sculptural practice, dForm incorporates a mix of rapid prototyping, video, live data capturing through web cams and the interactive generation of sound.

dForm explores the construction and perception of time-based events by examining the ability of static objects to encapsulate temporal information. It aims to question our relationship with physical objects by proposing new modalities for the representation of time-based events. dForm marks Charlton’s transition from sculptural practice to media artist in an interactive and deeply absorbing exhibition in which the movement and behaviour of viewers literally sculpt the work.

James Charlton
Having immigrated to New Zealand from the UK in 1973, James Charlton gained his BFA from Auckland University, Elam School of Fine Arts in 1982. As a Fulbright recipient he completed his MFA at the State University of New York at Albany in 1986. He has exhibited extensively in solo and group exhibitions throughout the USA, and was represented by Akin Gallery in Boston and John Gibson Gallery in New York.

During this time he lectured in sculpture at the University of New Hampshire, Monserrat College of Art and the State University of New York at Albany. Returning to New Zealand in 1991, Charlton was part of the team that established the Visual Arts degree at ASA School of Art and is currently the Programme Leader for Creative Technologies at Auckland University of Technology.

James’ practice engages a range of physical, digital and performative approaches in an exploration into the nature of the artefact as a field of activity in which the viewer is implicated. Current research projects with interactive digital object technologies centre around the integration of digital and physical content to question the definitions and inherent nature of time-based media.
