Sarah Hunter, Transmit director, was selected as one of two artists for Wild Creations an initiative to support artists to engage with nature and conservation run by Creative New Zealand and Department of Conservation. The project called ‘Home’. will be based around Porangahau Estuary in Hawke’s Bay, and a series of photographs by Sarah in the remote coastal habitat and workshops with Porangahau School pupils will form the basis for an installation. The photography will be printed on a series of origami paper lampshades and light box pillars by Juliet Black and accompanied by field sound by Dr Thomas Voyce.
