The map of the Dunedin Botanic Garden points to Foucault’s theory of Heterotopias via the diverse nature of the sites contained within the garden as a whole.

The artists in Other Echoes seek to build on this notion by highlighting the heterotopic nature of the garden itself. The works add a further dimension to the garden space, heightening the juxtaposition and incompatibility of the elements of the separate sites and leading to new readings and renewed appreciation of the Garden as a whole.
