From altitude, there is often little distinguishing us from the insect world that we tower above on a daily basis. The series is as much an anthropological study as it is representative of a winter landscape in the land of the long white cloud - Aotearoa. I find particular interest in the figurative elements, minimalist aspects and the interaction of humans with the white canvas as they express and recreate. From a distance, patterns of human behaviour can become even more evident by the way we are controlled and corralled into position, awaiting our turn to cycle through the system once more.
