The Garden Aotearoa Exhibition showcases over 20 projects from New Zealand’s artists, musicians, scientists and researchers in the form of prototypical installations, performances and talks. The Garden is designed as a bi-directional portal and welcomes national and international visitors to a cyber-physical environment. Local guests can visit the physical exhibition hosted by the Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation at VUW in Wellington; and international guests can experience the projects in a virtual 3D gallery and through a series of online events. This includes a sonic music night hosted by Meow, one of Wellington’s famous night clubs. We are looking forward to welcoming you in person in Wellington or online using your mobile phone, PC or VR headset.
