Drone film as sensorial interface promoting experiences of invisible aquifer

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

A film of the Hutt River, New Zealand, shot by drone as part of an artwork is the centerpiece for analysis of how it can provoke shifts in affect, perception, and participation with a river and its underground aquifer. The Rising Gale is an artwork by Murray Hewitt made for the Common Ground Festival 2017.
In this presentation we will examine the affects produced by both the filming and the performance of the filming in this context. In order to do so a film 'The Rising Gale Affect Event Film', part of this conference exhibition, is produced around and through our explorations for this presentation.The Rising Gale Affect Event film moves between the original drone film, The Rising Gale, two documentation films and the community gathering.
