IS 2001 / 2nd Digital Sculpture Competition
Pr. Brit BUNKLEY
Brit Bunkley is currently the head of sculpture at the Quay School of
the Arts, Wanganui Polytechnic in Wanganui, New Zealand. He moved there
from NYC with his family in 1995.
He had spent 16 yeas there as a working sculptor and photographer,
where he designed and built numerous commissions and received several grants
and fellowships including National Endowment of the Arts and the Rome Prize
Bunkley originally began using computers as a design tool for public
sculpture. His use of the computer eventually evolved to creating virtual
environments, sculptures and installations that were physically manifest
as large prints, videos and rapid prototypes. Since moving to New Zealand,
he has had two solo shows in public galleries and is presently working
on an upcoming solo show at the Fisher Gallery (“Te Tuhi - The Mark”) in
Auckland for mid 2002.
