Harboured

Harboured is a personal narrative exploring issues of contemporary immigration – finding comfort in familiarity, navigating vast physical and emotional distances, integrating into a new society. Visual, auditory, and emotional connections to the port of Auckland have been made through the shipping industry, a constant presence growing up as the daughter of a merchant marine in the port of Duluth. In the exhibition, large-scale photo textiles were combined with live video feed to negotiate the vast distances between ports in opposing hemispheres.
