This work was shown again in Dunedin for the Aotearoa Digital Arts Symposium in September 2013 on Vogel Street. The work incorporated a copper helmet resembling one of an old atmospheric diving helmet. On request by the viewer this work would decent from the Vogel Street Penthouse via a set of 1980s walkie talkie communication. The helmet was lowered to the desired height of the viewer in order to wear the object and experience an augmented view of the current location via an iPhone application.
The exhibition of this work was followed by CINEMA LOUNGE, a curated film screening featuring work by local filmmakers: Shelley Harding, Anet Neutze, Esta de Jong, Matt Middleton, Ted Whitaker, David Green, Max Bellamy, Phoebe Mackenzie, Sarah McKay.
