Sean Kerr

Ah ha

Artwork Detail

Sean Kerr is known for creating interactive computer installations that counterpoint analogue and digital processes and include puns on logic and word play. His Creative Learning Centre project at the Auckland Art Gallery in 2013, What’s It Doing?, was a room for exploration and inspiration that included banners, low-fi computer word generators, moving images, books and objects in ways that stimulated engagement with ways that we see and think. AHHA suggests one type of thought process – the moment of problem solving or the forming of conscious realisation. The sound component adds a comic inflection to the large-scale neon, which signals the creative authority of art as the equivalent of a gigantic light bulb.
