As an aside, one of the reasons I was keen to explore living outside of NZ was
that after the 'relay' series at Artspace (1996, initiated by Honor) was sacked
there was no common, open-spirited, place-and-time to meet with people to create
and solve interesting problems. After relay the whole bottom seemed to fall out
of a very productive and exciting little scene in Auckland at the time.
I didn't always know where to start back then regarding art and electricity and
was almost permanently broke. It's not that the fall of relay made it impossible
to collaborate and share knowledge so much as that it significantly reduced the
overhead to do so..
