Room 13’s sculpture is called Wahi which means ‘Our place’. It is a blue ‘T’ shape with long woven fabric plaits coming off it.
You can find this sculpture on the side of The Performing Arts Centre by the flying fox.
Room 13 were inspired to tell the story of who they are.They used blue and green to show their surroundings and koru and plaits to represent New Zealand and their heritage. The class describe their sculpture as ‘a tree growing in their place’. It feels both hard and smooth and should be touched gently as it is very fragile.
