Pou Rewa: The Liquid Post, Maori Go Digital?

by Maree Mills

Third Text, 2009, v. 23, no. 3, pp. 241-250

This essay communicates the author's research into the framework of Maori digital art and seeks to explain a Maori creative practice as it relates to her investigation into multimedia approaches to communicating the female element within the Maori philosophy for the 21st century. The use of non-traditional media and emerging electronic or digital technologies have a potential to allow for a distinctive 'public space' to emerge for the articulation of alternative world-views. Maori artists have used digital technologies to communicate indigenous constructs and indigenous relations to new media.
