The Picture Project (2020) (5’)
An Immersive Experience
Step into an immersive audio-visual experience representing contemporary life in Dunedin presented via a digital screen, printed panels and diffused sound.
A collaborative work between composer Warwick Blair and designer Leanne Matthews, this project aims to compile unique snapshots of New Zealand life into an “ultimate representation or expression of environment”.
Utilising photos submitted by members of the community; hear how Blair has compiled these snapshots into sound which has then been woven into a composition. For the visual component, see how artist Matthews has superimposed the submitted photographs into one image, emphasizing the theme of community unity which runs throughout the project.
10am – 4pm, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June
Send a Photo and We’ll Change it Into a Sound!

What does a snapshot of your life look like?
On behalf of artists Warwick Blair and Leanne Matthews, Toitū invites people living in Dunedin to submit a photo of their daily environment.
Combining the compositional talents of Blair with the visual work of Matthews, the pair aim to create an audio-visual experience unique to the Dunedin community.
Blair will reinterpret the submitted photos into soundbites, while Matthews will compile them into one cohesive image.
