MAKING FRIENDS - PART 1 (NEW ZEALAND)

 

1-3pm Sunday 29 December 2013

Development AIR Residency & Project Space

110 Carlton Gore Road Newmarket Auckland

A residency project developed by David Creed & Angela Rossitto of The Wandering Room

 

Join Angela and David as they build their list of online, sculptural and physical friends here in Auckland and explore the Pareidolia phenomenon.

 

Pareidolia is a phenomenon that allows us to "see" faces and other objects in completely unrelated objects and settings. Carl Sagan theorized that this provided an evolutionary advantage, as it allows humans to better recognize each other, even under poor visual circumstances.
