Last weekend, I projected a series of photographs at TEZA (The Transitional Economic Zone of Aotearoa), an art initiative that took place in New Brighton, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Earlier this year I had photographed murals, shop window displays, and other artefact in New Brighton, and this was an opportunity to project some of those images. In all 162 images were shown. Tim Barlow had constructed a Teepee out of translucent bio-plastic and was willing to loan me some of the material to build a rear projection screen. Images were back projected from inside a caravan onto the translucent film placed inside the rear window.

Many thanks to Tim Barlow for supplying the bio-plastic film and with help setting up the projector and computer. Thanks to two unknown people who helped with computer set-up. Thanks to Mark Amery, Sophie Jerram for making TEZA happen. Thanks to Kim Lowe for encouraging me to get involved, and thanks to Kerry Ann Lee for publishing my images (from my earlier 2006 photography series "Trip to the Fair" also shot in Brighton) in 'Alternating Currents' zine.
Below is a selection of images projected:
