Collaborative artwork installed at National Aquarium of New Zealand

Following exhibitions in Whakatū/Nelson, Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington and Tauranga, art-science project The Unseen has now made its way to the National Aquarium of New Zealand in Ahuriri/Napier.

Created by artist and science communicator Gabby O'Connor, this exhibition aims to make the unseen marine world visible. Gabby's mahi is the result of research from the Navigating marine social-ecological systems project.

This collaborative artwork has been created by people aged 3 to 83 from across the motu, and the unseen risks of environmental change have been shared with 5,000 school children and their whānau. 

The artwork is currently being installed at the National Aquarium, and will be on display from 11 March – 8 June 2022.

In the meantime, check out this timelapse of The Unseen being installed.
