The Work

This piece seeks to create an atmosphere of calm and joy by bringing a slice of the natural beauty of te taio ō Aotearoa to an urban landscape. Borg has highlighted some of our lesser known manu and flora – te tītitipounamu (Rifleman) and te mohua (Yellowhead) perch amongst puawhananga (native clematis) and the more recognisable pink mānuka which Declana atronivea, the North Island lichen moth floats above.
