Hundreds of historical photographs from Tauranga Moana will swirl, shift and bloom as part of an interactive digital artwork.
Handpicked from the archives of Tauranga Library’s Pae Korokī, Tauranga Heritage Collection and The Elms Foundation, ‘Echoes: Tauranga Moana’ will showcase highlights from these rich local collections; from taonga of national significance to Te Puke A&P shows, to beach culture from the 60s.
‘Echoes: Tauranga Moana’ was created by Wellington production studio Storybox and artist Puck Murphy. Featuring an interactive digital sensor, audience members can interact with the mosaic of photographs and upload selfies, creating an experience where the echoes of yesterday join our community of today. #echoestgamoana
This experience can be found on the free to download City Art Walk Tauranga App. It is one of four artworks opening over the coming months, curated by Supercut Projects for the Tauranga Arts Festival.
