Ron Bull

Ron Bull is a Kāi Tahu mātauraka knowledge-holder and linguist. He is part of the Kaihaukai Collective and together with Simon Kaan has produced social exchanges based around food nationally and internationally, including at the International Symposium of Electronic Arts and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. He has also worked on collaborative art projects with artists such as Alex Monteith. Bull is a researcher on cross-cultural collaboration and engages with place-based narratives through social art practice.

Stefan Marks

Stefan Marks is a creative technologist in the School of Future Environments at Auckland University of Technology. His main areas of research are collaborative extended reality (XR) and data visualisation or, as he prefers to call it, ‘data-driven, immersive storytelling.’ Stefan creates tools to turn complex or abstract information into visual, audible and other sensory forms to allow the human brain to perceive, discover and understand patterns and relations. Some of his projects have dealt with earthquake data, the human nasal cavity anatomy and artificial neural network connectivity.

Janine Randerson

Janine Randerson is an artmaker of video installations, 16mm films, sound and online artworks. She often practises in collaboration with environmental scientists and community groups. Janine’s book Weather as Medium: Toward a Meteorological Art (MIT Press, 2018) focuses on modern and contemporary artworks that engage with our present and future weathers. She also generates art exhibitions, events and screening programmes.

Rachel Shearer

Rachel Shearer investigates sound as a medium through a range of practices: public urban/site-specific and gallery-based installations; studio-based composing of experimental sound experiences/music; collaborating as a sound designer or composer for moving image and live performance events; and writing. A focus in Shearer’s work is thinking through Māori and Western philosophies and technologies around the materiality of sound and how we listen to the whenua.
