Piki Mai, an abstract audio visual art work, will create wondrous illusion through large scale projection and lighting on Nelson’s Cathedral and Church Steps. This work is being created especially for the Nelson Arts Festival and Game On, re-telling the story of Nelson in a visually spectacular way.

The content of the Piki Mai artwork will be based on a wide range of images and text from earlier times: paintings, drawings, photos, film, newspaper and magazine articles, historical and mythical records and personal stories. The maker of the work, Michael Hodgson, and his digital collaborator, Chris Macmillan, will weave these literal provocations into an abstract moving image work that is designed to be a feast for the eyes.

The Church Steps and Nelson’s Christ Church Cathedral are the current structures on the hill and their marble facades make a perfect projection surface.

Thanks to - Nelson Provincial Museum, Isel Park, Founders Heritage Park, Nelson Libraries, Nelson Cathedral, Nelson City Council.

Nelson Arts Festival, 7 - 24 October 2011.
