Design Statement

OneOne invokes a sense of ancient culture, an archetype being unearthed through real- world experience that is timeless and contemporary. This resonates with natural elements: stone, water, wind, and sunlight. In Te Reo Maori the title means soil, sand or earth which is appropriate because the source of the inspiration for the work is New Zealand landscape. OneOne explores human existence as part of eternal cycles. It suggests ritual where echoes of the past resonate in a universal view of the present. https://vimeo.com/139982829 (Vimeo link to installation film version of OneOne)
