Poi – The Maori art of spinning objects through space
POI – Point of interest. A mapping reference used in networked and mobile media.

POI explores the exchanging of points in time, or places in space, giving us the chance to review the world around us through innovative media art works. The installations investigate our shifting existences, both physical and digital, and the ways we perceive, shape and interweave the environments we inhabit. The narratives created ultimately comment on our surroundings, from a social, historical and technological perspective.
Eight international artists approach the subject with interactive interfaces, video installations, sound sculptures, textile media and custom built immersive environments. Film and photography from the past, sounds and images from the present, artefacts referencing remote and ephemeral places in time are brought together, starkly contrasting the live involvement of participants and even the presence of another animal, illustrating the duality at the heart of the works as a whole.
