Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artists Senior
By Kayla Folwell & Manaia Mahuika-Davies for SCAPE Public Art Season 2018
The korowai (cloak) is made from individually designed feathers, from over 60 Ōtautahi students. Each feather drawing combines, linking the people who contributed to it just as the rivers link on our landscape.
The kōwhaiwhai pattern is an interpretation of the braided rivers, the form is influenced by the birds eye view of the rivers, the way they move and braid.
