Public Access 5 - Art at the Silo 6 Park

Andrew Stephens, Tuesday the 10th of April, 2012 in Travel and Places

The silos in the Wynyard Quarter have been an enigma to me ever since the park was opened to the public This post was automatically imported from my old sandfly.net.nz blog. It may look a little weird since it was not originally written for this format.. They stand tall but inaccessible, guarding their secrets...

...until now, because some artists have used the space for a funky collaborative project - Public Access 5. Like all collaborative projects, much of it is rubbish but there are some great things to see. The best works involved video projectors wrapping the strange shapes of the silo internals with writhing images.

It is not a big exhibition so you can easily take it in on your lunch break. If nothing else it is a chance to finally see the interior of the mysterious silos. Now I just wish you could climb to the top.

Public Access 5 runs until Friday the 13th of April, 1012.
