If you are heading up to Matakana any time soon, make sure you stop in at Brick Bay Sculpture Trail and check out the second work in the series Oh how the intangible have fallen. Constructed out of weatherproof steel just before Christmas 2011. It is weathering into its surrounds nicely.
As 2011 draws to a close, I wish everyone the best for the holiday season and for those around Auckland, NZ, I hope to see you at SPLORE 2012, I will be there with a brand new installation for the festival entitled, All hands to the ropes. It is an interactive installation, with a little danger too.
Saturday 26th November was a LONG day, but starting at 8am Aaron began laying down the footprints of 670 pairs of men's feet. Throughout the day many visitors came up and introduced themselves and chatted about the work, with several prostate cancer survivors keen to show their appreciation for the work and share their stories.
The ability of artwork to move people, not only emotionally, but motivate them to do something about their immediate situation and environment is what drives me to continue to create art. I hope that those that saw the work in progress gave pause to their position in life and to take their health into their own hands and keep on top of it.
Art needs you! - more specifically your shoes - even more specific serviceable men's shoes. Come down and say hi from 8am to 8pm Saturday 26th Movember at QEII Square in Auckland, New Zealand and join the installation. All shoes collected will be donated to North Shore Hospice.

Open Saturday and Sunday from 10am - 4pm with cafe on site and best of all it is FREE to take a look.
