Sculpture by the Sea - Cottesloe (Perth, WA) March 2013
Veronica Herber - Slowness Shifting V

Helping to install Veronica Herbers' slowness shifting V at Cottesloe Beach in Perth (Western Australia) was such a great experience.   

These rocks jut out into the sea so attaching the masking tape with the salt, sand, spray and heat in just three days was a challenge and working with Veronica and Regina made it lots of fun.    

Veronica's intention to have "no distinct pattern" in the layout of the tape was an interesting contradiction for me where raranga/maori weaving is so much about working in patterns.  

Veronica Herber is an installation artist based in Auckland. New Zealand.  She works in a variety of media but mainly masking tape.  

"Over time I have developed a masking tape webbing that has qualities of camouflage and the ability to shapeshift its way from surface to surface transforming spaces and ultimately itself."
