“What might we find when we stop looking?” is the question navigated over multiple walks through the city of Ōtautahi Christchurch guided by the nonvisual senses. In this exhibition, understandings and materials gathered on these often-playful pedestrian explorations led by multimedia artist Jo Burzynska, are used to create interactive multisensory installations that can be heard, smelled, touched and tasted. Revealing what could remain overlooked on the well-trodden paths of our visually dominated society, these works reflect, remap and reimagine the city, encouraging different connections with our urban environment.
