Wandering creatures
By Kim Newall
Auckland Zoo 14 Feb 2013 to 20 Mar 2013

Grab your smart phone and a Wandering Creatures map, read the clues, and get ready to discover 12 new creatures hidden around Auckland Zoo! Watch as they come alive through the eyes of your phone.
Artist Kim Newall creates imaginative, hybrid, creatures made using of a mix traditional drawing and animation methods, and digital interactive media. The creatures exist in the space between digital the physical and evolve their unique identities through audience engagement.
Wandering Creatures is the evolution of the interactive exhibition Roosting (presented at Digital Art Live in 2011) and Urban Life (2008) where two birds perched on the back of the old Odeon Cinema on Lorne Street responding to passers and the environment.
This exhibition is a part of Auckland Fringe.

KIM NEWALL

Kim Newall is a multimedia artist living and working in Auckland, who uses traditional and new media with an interest in building a conversation between these two modes of artistic expression. His process is a flow from the hand drawn or painterly into the digital and back again; through this process the boundaries of digital and hand drawn become obscured and both media are reinvented.
Kim is a lecturer on the Bachelor of Creative Technologies programme, and the co-ordinator of CoLab’s Interactive Suite at AUT University
