Te Ao Huri Huri | The Turning World Becky Cameron
An offisite Project presented as a part of the Puaka Matariki Otepoti Festival 2014, Athenaeum Basement, The Octagon
A series of constructed lamps project through turning patterned shades, filling the basement of the Athenaeum with light, movement and texture. As the viewer is guided through a pathway, they are immersed in changing stories of the cosmos, the cycles of life and death, the atua Rangi and Papa.
