The installation space of Ngā Hau E Whā – The Four Winds was designed and built by Auckland-based installer, Norman Edgerton. With the assistance of Tanu Gago, the space took two weeks to build.
Leilani’s vision was to create a pitch black room. Five walls were erected to form a square viewing room and a passage way to enter the space.
Wellington-based computer programmer and artist, Douglas Bagnall was commissioned to make the computer which synced the four videos.
The custom-made projector casings were installed after the walls went up.
And after the walls were painted black, the white vinyl signage went up.
