The Halo Project

Wednesday 11th-Sunday 22nd October 2017

The 'Halo Project’ is a collaboration by Wellington visual artist Paul Forrest, Auckland bird photographer Derek Tearne, and soundscape artist/birdman Matu Booth.

The aim is to celebrate the dynamic beauty of native birdlife through contemporary visual art and sound.

This residency is also an opportunity to generate conversation about the importance of native tree planting projects and supporting initiatives that stimulate a healthy native bird life throughout New Zealand.

This art installation at the Nelson Museum is a continuation of the artists drive to celebrate the beauty of New Zealands native birdlife and also to promote the importance of The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and what it offers the surrounding countryside and wider community.

When the native birds start migrating and breeding outside the sanctuaries and nature reserves that is known as the ‘halo effect’
