Dark Arts x Gary Mackay have created a light installation drawing from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s molten past - the volcanic foundations from which Auckland’s villa-lined streets were built on and from.

While these volcanic foundations may never be molten again, they have looked to other building materials we can “re-flow”. Corrugated roofing, a quintessential symbol of the kiwi home, provides the perfect medium.

Bending, twisting, and melting, Rupture subverts this rigid building material, making the streets molten once again.

Check out this vibrant installation in Chancery Square during Artweek. 

Part of ArtWeek in the city centre 2023.
