Inahaa Te Urutahi Waikerepuru, Stuart Foster and Kura Puke continue to explore the correlations of light, sound and their vibrational qualities and resonating effects. He Aurongo will engage with daylight and its separation into spectral entities : aniwaniwa – rainbows.
We will explore how the revealed colour /light can project with, and, in the spaces we may work in. These projections will also include accompanied audio. Within these sounds; both voice and environmental, we seek to align to the frequencies of these light/colour forms.
The kaupapa for this work is inspired by the teachings from tribal elders, that speak of interconnection between ourselves and our environment.
