An immersive installation by British artist Gayle Chong Kwan, Wastescape explores New Zealand’s relationship with food and dairy through pre-colonial agriculture, craft techniques and waste, and uses thousands of used plastic milk bottles and photography to create otherworldly landscapes.

Join artist Gayle Chong Kwan for a sensory tour of Wastescape, enabling blind and low vision participants to use their non-visual senses to experience and bring to life her ideas, research, and the development of the work. The tour will include elements of audio description. Wastescape explores our relationship with food and dairy through pre-colonial agriculture, craft techniques and waste, and uses thousands of used plastic milk bottles and photography to create otherworldly landscapes.
