Water falling, Brownian motion and wai: two rocks and a meander – going for a walk with Te Urutahi Waikerepuru to view potential SCANZ art work sites, has led to reflecting on our experience of city, and how this is changed when the traverse follows a river rather than the grid of the streets. Buried culture is revealed, and the multiple histories of place emerge. Quite unlike the paved city, where all has been transformed by industrial processes.
