For the Te Tuhi Drawing Wall, Auckland artist Monique Jansen creates a mesmerising work by cutting hundreds of fine lines into the wall's surface. The numerous lines give the appearance of murmuration which Jansen explains is "the phenomena of thousands of starlings flocking, swarming, folding and unfolding, gathering and collapsing or the continuous murmur of a crowd". The work reflects the very busy social space of Te Tuhi's foyer where hundreds of people converge and dissipate throughout the day.
