  • Exploring the Responsive Site: Ko Maungawhau ki runga




  • Ko Maungawhau ki runga is a performative research project by the author on the site of a former 17th century Maori Pa (fortified village) in Auckland, New Zealand. It is a subset of the long term project “Do we see in algorithms?” and uses location aware technology to deploy augments at precise nodes in a meaningful location. Accessed on foot, the augments explore multiple strategies for engagement between Global Positioning Systems (GPS), the smartphone as an art interface, user, artist and site.
