Today I am packing and preparing equipment and materials so that I can begin installing Order, Structure, Pattern #2 at the National Library of NZ. This work continues from the collaboration with Shaun Hendy about complexity and innovation networks and his book Get off the Grass.
The work is part of a greater exhibition about innovation in NZ and is titled the Leading Edge. My work will be the art project within a sea of design, technology and engineering feats. It is all quite exciting really. Already I have a few volunteers dropping by to help tighten a cable tie or two. Due to the repetitive nature of the work it is always nice to have some company and fine conversation.
Anyhow, I have to go back to the hardware store for a few last minute supplies.
These pics are the before shot, and next week I will chronicle the installation before the big reveal on the 3rd December, 2013.
