Studio Access

Poatina Arts and the Poatina Glass Studio played a significant role in this project by providing access to their studio facilities and specialised glassblowing equipment. The artist would also like to acknowledge the colony of artists that are part of the Poatina Arts collective who provided much support, feedback and assistance throughout the project.

Thomas Pearson was instrumental in the production of the 300+ blown glass bubbles for the project, bringing his considerable skill and experience in production glassblowing to the team as gaffer. Without Thom's commitment and support this project would not have been possible.

Stephen Avery

Stephen Avery assisted throughout the 11 Day Installation process, working long days without a break to locate and clean bubbles and keep track of where each bubble ended up in the seven nets. He also designed a data base to record the cumulative weights of all the bundles and each bubble's final position. He was a fantastic support to the artist throughout the installation.
