"In 2007 NZ On Air initiated the NZ On Screen project as an integral part of its digital strategy. Since 1989 NZ On Air has funded over 15,000 hours of local television production. Much of this content, as well as thousands more hours supported by broadcasters, film investors and other funding sources, is not easily accessible to the public.
NZ On Screen is unlocking the treasure chest, providing access to the wealth of television, film, music video and new media produced in NZ, along with knowledgeable background information."

"William Wulf coined the term collaboratory in 1989 to describe a “center without walls, in which the nation’s researchers can perform their research without regard to physical location, interacting with colleagues, accessing instrumentation, sharing data and computational resources, [and] accessing information in digital libraries.”"

"Since 1989, Günther has used globes to depict global crises. 'Refugee Globe' is part of the series 'World Processor'. 'Refugee Globe' represents the streams of refugees all over the world. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees registered 20 million refugees worldwide in 1990; by 1995, the number had risen to 27 million people. The width of the arrows on the globe is proportional to the volume of refugees fleeing from one place to another. In his series of globes, Günther transposes mere statistical data into a visual, sculptural form, thus showing that the fate of the individual is the smallest component of complex global processes."
