Paul Baragwanath is an art project initiator and curator. Paul’s passion is for art that serves to lift consciousness and shift the way we experience life. Art can transform places, connecting us with others, and with the natural world. It can bring the past to life, and help us to navigate the future. Great art brings us into the present moment.
Te Rangimārie is a soundscape work woven from online messages of peace in many different languages. Everyone is invited to record a message of peace online. The messages are subsequently composed into the work and replayed in surround sound. The power of community is paramount in this work, everyone's voice is heard.
The Waihorotiu stream was covered over and put underground by the urbanisation of the Queen Street gully over a hundred years ago. Māori stories tell us that the stream was home to Horotiu, a taniwha.
This work is a call to Horotiu to help uncover and restore the stream as the centrepiece of Auckland city. To reconnect to nature, make visible what is under the concrete, and to see the stream once again as a taonga.
