Heather Hayward is an artist based in Wellington, New Zealand. She works between various techniques, drawing, installation and video.
As a New Zealander, living in a country that is geographically the "last stop" before Antarctica, I like to employ modes and methods of travel and exploration; walking, flying, maps, the internet, photography.
I like video work for its ability to capture moments that occur naturally. These moments are often far more interesting and complex than anything that I could ever imagine, conjure or fabricate. It also allows me to express an idea without making yet another object. Video work is light and free and travels effortlessly.
