Serra. Te Tuhirangi Contur
The site of “Te Tuhirangi Contur“ is on the Kaipara harbour, 45 km north of Auckland. The site is vast open grass pasture with rolling elevations. The elevational fall of the land establishes curvilinear contours. The sculpture is located on one continuous contour, at a length of 257m (843’2“). The particular contour was chosen for ist location, differentiation, concentration and expansion in relation to the volume of the landscape. The elevation of the sculpture is perpendicular to the fall of the land which generates its lean of 11 degrees. The work was mocked-up full scale in wood to determine height and lenght.
