Kupesi o Masons Screen (Patterns of Mason Screen) (2022)

5 minSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

The pre-recorded sound of traffic and footsteps around Wellington public art site Masons Screen is used to generate digital kupesi (a Tongan word for patterns). Onscreen, these flex and transform in response to the hum of the city and the noise of passersby.

Kupesi o Masons Screen was developed by the artist for Masons Screen.
