Water pics on show

17:00, Jul 18 2013

A photographic installation taken by everyday Aucklanders is making a splash at the fifth Auckland Triennial.

Grey Lynn artist Cathy Carter has asked Aucklanders to visit a stretch of water along the Waitemata Harbour close to where they live or work and to take a photo of the water itself.

The Waitemata Obsidian Waters public project has been inspired by the Triennial theme of "if you were to live here …".

Photos have been taken with smartphones and cameras and then uploaded to the project's website before being printed live at the Auckland Art Gallery's design-based open laboratory called The Lab.

Ms Carter has received more than 120 photos so far for the installation.

The photos are being put together in the space for the exhibition which will end on Sunday.

The Auckland Triennial runs until August 11.
