Unguided tours artists talk
David Haines and Joyce Hinterding discuss their work in 'Unguided tours'.
In their 2011 work for the Anne Landa Award, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding invite gallery-goers to pick up the controls and conduct their own voyage through an immersive, two-screen videogame environment. Unlike most 'first-person shooters’, this game rewards curiosity and open-ended movement, unfolding through a haunting monochrome landscape of forests, buildings and deserts that recall the contemporary Middle East. In this special talk, Haines and Hinterding share with us their ideas and process surrounding this new interactive project.
Haines and Hinterding work individually and collaboratively and together have produced large-scale, immersive video and sound works that explore the tension between the fictive and the phenomenal. Over the last decade they have collaborated on numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally. Both Haines and Hinterding currently lecture at the Sydney College of the Arts.
