Boon Sculpture Trail - Kirikiriroa Hamilton
My piece Kirikiriroa Abacus is up for your viewing pleasure in Garden Place, Kiririroa Hamilton as part of the Boon Sculpture Trail.
An interest in the divine mathematics in nature is an underlying inspiration for exploring these ancient counting devices. Over time these pieces have grown conceptually to challenge ideas around the perpetual growth economies we find ourselves inextricably a part of and their environmental impacts. More broadly they question what we value and of those things less tangible, how they can be measured. The graphic inner patterning attempts to reference water and the mighty Waikato Awa. The triangular shape of this abacus mimics the classic peaked roof shape, or the wharenui and with it a sense of home.
Exhibition runs until March 31st
