Trustpower presents a spectacular video work, projected onto Carter Fountain. Using a special fixture made for the fountain in the Sun Festival (1983) by Joe Bleakley and Russell Collins, this work is the first artistic engagement with this famous Wellington landmark in 36 years.
Video artist Jeremy Brick has worked with RNZB dancers Abigail Boyle and Sara Garbowski to produce the breathtaking image of a dancer dancing on Wellington Harbour, her ghostly shape flickering with the movement of the water and the city lights behind her.
The work will be visible half an hour after sunset until 11.30pm each evening of the Arcade, weather permitting. Follow The Pink Line to Oriental Bay rotunda and climb the steps to the roof for the best view.
