Organ of Corti (2010-11) an experimental acoustical intervention

"Organ of Corti is an experimental instrument that recycles noise from the environment. It does not make any sound of its own, but rather it attempts to draw our attention to the sounds already present by framing them in a new way. Named after the organ of hearing in the inner ear, it uses the acoustic technology of sonic crystals to accentuate and attenuate frequencies within the broad range of sound present in road traffic or falling water. By recycling surplus sounds from our environment, we hope to challenge expectations of what might constitute a piece of music by adding nothing to the existing soundscape but rather offering new ways of listening to what is already there. This instrument is a device that, for us, rematerializes our experience of sound, inviting us to 'listen to ourselves listen'."

(Frances Crow and David Prior)

Open Urban: Know Your City - Map, Inform, Discuss

"OpenUrban is the first open source user–generated web map and forum focusing on current and proposed urban development. It is a web platform for civic collaboration, a venue for debate, and an outlet and archive for information on urban development. We embrace crowd sourcing technology as a means to inform and empower. By combining written media with spatial information OpenUrban creates a powerful tool for people to understand how their cities are changing and supports their active participation in that change."

Modular architecture central to Christchurch's urban regeneration

"Martin Trusttum, from CPIT's Faculty of Creative Industries, likens his ArtBox project to a game of Tetris. 'It's just like Tetris but in slow motion. They are cubes and eventually they will come together to form a precinct.'

ArtBox will be located on the corner of Madras and St Asaph streets on the old Southlander Tavern–Jetset Lounge site opposite Anton Parsons' sculpture Passing Time.

It is a rare collection of mobile and flexible modules designed by Sydenham–based F3 and will offer about 18 spaces suitable for galleries and studios. It offers a practical, timely solution to the many low–cost premises used as galleries and studios destroyed by the February 2011 earthquake. "

The Cut Up Collective and their Cut Up Machine

"The Moustache Foundation is proud to present for its inaugural exhibition, CutUp Machine, a series of new works by the collective CutUp.

CutUp are an autonomous group linked by a shared desire to reorder the urban landscape through intervention and play. Incorporating film, collage and installation, CutUp's practice focuses largely on the creative potential of the street as a site for interventionist art and disruption.

Interested in the spaces of misinformation and miscommunication inherent in the everyday, CutUp aim to introduce disorder into daily existence by interrupting and re–appropriating established visual forms. Occurring both inside and outside the gallery, CutUp's billboard and bus stop works are created by slicing up an advert and reassembling the pieces into a newly ordered image."

(Jaguar Shoes Collective, 4 November 2005)

Pop-up art transform Christchurch earthquake barriers

"Bryan L'Estrange has been chosen to curate an art exhibition in Sumner on canvases stretched across the container fronts. They will be installed at Sumners' Peacock's Gallop stretch of Containers. In some cases the containers are 12 metres long. ..

Dinesh Patel is the designer, Bryan LEstrange is curator. They are taking submissions from artists and looking for sponsors now. Some of the artists already confirmed include Ben Reid, Tony Delautour and Kees Bruin as well as Simon Kaan, Tony Cribb and Jason Kelly."

(L'Estrange Art Gallery, 06 September 2011, The Big Idea)

[The shipping containers were put in place as barriers to prevent injury by falling rocks, after the September 2010 earthquake in the seaside Christchurch suburb of Sumner in Aotearoa New Zealand.]
