It brings a lot of pleasure seeing my work in its final form, especially when such a collaborative assignment such as this one. The local runanga at Port Levy, under the guidance of Peter Ramsden, initiated a project to promote the history and language of the Port Levy area.
Part of this is a three part Po installation, and associated signage, to promote traditional place names and landmarks of the surrounding area. This secluded part of Banks Peninsula has had continuous occupation for over 1000 years, and has immense significance for local Maori. That is certainly a lot of history for such a young country that is New Zealand.
