Kent Macpherson – sound
Stefanie Young - photographs
Downstream is an installation of sounds and photographs choreographed from 30 selected places along the Waikato River. Running 425 kms from the Tongariro to Port Waikato, the Waikato River is central to the daily life of the Waikato region.
The river has the seductive qualities of water to inspire contemplation and caution - diverse responses invoked by the textures and depths of the changeable Waikato River. Every sound and photograph is unique to its time and place at the river, showing a connected complexity to this moving body of water.
Downstream presents an aural/visual experience of the Waikato River, reclaiming listening as a primary sense, and in combination with images, activates our visual memory and perceptions of time and place.
A remix or reinterpretation of the field/visual recording, time-synced so that the sets of sounds shift in and out of one another in unison, setting the stage for you to navigating between the aural/visual senses simultaneously throughout the space.
