Erica Sklenars is a New Zealand based artist and designer, working across the fields of video art, installation, performance and intervention. Her practice is often collaborative, and explores modes of communication between people and social groups, pop culture, underground cultures, as well as DIY adaptation or hacking of technology. Often using humor, Sklenars’ work subverts and contentedly inhabits personal human failures, and plays with future dystopian themes evident in current day life. Her practice also deals with exploring different understandings and forms of feminism through creative collaboration and research. Sklenars creates both solo performative works, and collaborative audio-visual performance installation (often under the pseudonym Lady Lazer Light) working with sound artists and musicians to create performance environments, experiences, and music videos. Sklenars has an MFA from Massey University and currently lives and works in Dunedin, NZ. For full music videos and more work: http://www.ericasklenars.com/
Dan Harris is an artist and independent filmmaker living in Takaka, Aotearoa. His work incorporates 2D and 3D animations and experimental film. His work often focuses on personal and cultural anxieties, progression and growth, obsolescence and stagnation, and the difficulties of art communicating 'truth'. In 2018 he was awarded Creative New Zealand funding to create work around China's DIY music and touring scene, was an animation assistant for Jess Johnson and Simon Ward's (2018 Walters Prize Finalists) Virtual Reality installation at the National Gallery of Australia and an animator for the Maori Televison production, Aroha Bridge. Previously his work has been screened at festivals including the TeleVisions Project in Australia, The Wellington Underground Film Festival, and has won the 'Incredibly Strange' award at the New Zealand 48 Film Festival.

In-situ is a year-round artist residency in the heart of Hong Kong that fosters international exchange through open call applications.
In-situ is Latin for "in place". Our aim is to support artists with an experimental art practice. We are less focused on the final outcome, but rather, on the process of making, and of discovery. We also don’t ask for detailed project proposals, budgets, or schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed after spending time here, "in-situ".
