70 x 45 for Late Night Art 2023 - Urban Art Village

    As part of a master's thesis, the project is a homage and mockery of what an Asian-Kiwi arch might look like. It welcomes the public to make marks, draw and interact with it.

The installation ridicules the typical Chinatown arch's scale, tectonic, and ornament. Mostly made from 70x45 timber battens essential to the typical Kiwi home, combined with the aesthetic of the dougong resulting in a kitsch hybridised form.
