The Fabric of Us was a collaboration between NWS and Auckland based post production company Creature. Part of Luma 2017 in Queenstown’s Botanical Gardens, we occupied the heritage listed 1920’s potting shed/glasshouse with the intention of transforming it momentarily from a building to object. An object with the preciousness of an heirloom. We filled it with light to give the appearance of a solid object. We projected pounamu, cracking timber shingles, calligraphic brushstrokes and lines from a poem which uses the same words to speak of corporeal beauty and the beauty of the land. Weather washes away both the words and the material facade at rhythmic intervals making this installation a 4 minute looping heart warming delight.
