Nā rātou te huarahi i para, hei whai mā tātou.
A pathway has been forged for us to follow.
Para responds to Prototype for a Daydream by Lonnie Hutchinson. Whilst engaging with concepts of nohoaka and wānanga, Para evolved through the use of materials associated with camping and a reconfiguration of residue from Lonnie’s work.
Para was partly created under the shelter of Prototype for a Daydream in a wānanga setting, through participation by visitors and nohoaka occupants whilst listening to music, sharing stories, cracking jokes and engaging in philosophical discussions about the "ā" and "ō". Para will continue to evolve as new wānanga take place and new occupants take up residence in the space.
