GHOST IN THE MACHINE

Tuffery's new exhibition Ghost in the Machine explores the contemporary meaning of this traditional title through updated archival imagery. Using animation and stereoscopic technology, Tuffery re-imagines the portraits of unknown nineteenth-century matai, sourced from the collection of the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Ghost in the Machine speculates on what these individuals would have thought about the world we live in today, and how they would have dealt with obligations to their community in the age of globalisation.
