Aotearoa Now is like a Kiwi Koyaanisqatsi

If you loved Koyaanisqatsi (I saw it on acid years ago and it still blows my mind) you’ll love this Vimeo short. You’d have to be a child of the 80s to really appreciate it…

“In the spaces in between, in the regional qualities of silence, something was missing. Even in the age of infill housing and noise control officers, much of New Zealand seemed to be on close terms with abstraction.”
Steve Braunias (2012). Civilisation: Twenty Places on the Edge of the World.

Aotearoa Now is a meditative journey into the New Zealand landscape. An experimental mosaic of image and sound. A really bad tourism campaign.
