SCAPE - Kazu Nakagawa

Time folds in on itself as we take our past with us into who we become.  This artwork is a phonetic rendering of a well-known Maori whakatauki that talks of walking backwards into the future.  Reflecting a wider community which is standing with the people of Christchurch, two large open rings lean in, each depending on the other to stay upright.  Exploring the idea of origami, faceted shapes echo the natural modular forms repeated in trees, shells and molecules.
