The night projection artists are:
Inahaa Te Urutahi Waikerepuru
Warrior Mountain of Peace
This montage is based on the birth of our landscape of Aotearoa and the greatest love story ever told, that abides deep within the caverns and crevasses of Papa-tu-a-nuku.
Project Peace Mandala
This work has been created from photographic images of nature. Mandala is a Sanskrit word for circle, it is a symbol that has resonated with me all my life and in my journey as an artist.
This work is an interactive night time projection in which the concept of water and its sustainability is investigated, through a convergence of 3D digital objects with recordings of water and voices.
A Sisyphean swimmer toils relentlessly against the current. His single stroke, trapped in an endless glitch of video, pulls a moment into a string of moments, into a night of moments.

Additional works created by SCANZ participants will also be viewable on the night.
Huatoki walkway announced as site for SCANZ water*peace art works
The Huatoki walkway and Plaza are now reserved for SCANZ 2015:water*peace events. We are particularly pleased the New Plymouth District Council has supported our project in this way, as it means we will be able to locate creative works along the Huatoki walkway, for temporary exhibition on Sunday February 2nd 2015.
The Huatoki River is site of many stories, dating from pre-European times to industrial usages, through to the current walkway/recreational purpose. A range of site types can be offered to successful artists.
