Make Like a Tree

A unique temporary interactive art performance and installation by kids for kids. Ben and Sam Hume, twin brothers who recently arrived from the UK to live in NZ, are the young artists designing and implementing the project with some help from the children at the Mt Albert YMCA After School Care.

They don’t want to give too much away except that the project has an environmental slant “Its partly about making the world a better place to live but also its about having fun” says Ben. With the outer space feel of the Rocket Park the project plays with the idea of being or feeling alien in a new place. The boys will be using the cardboard boxes that moved all their belongings from the UK to NZ for the project.

The project is facilitated by Cath O’Brien of Make Like A Tree “Children create art all the time as part of their play. The aim of this project is make public temporary art by children part of our urban culture.”

Participation from the public is integral to the project so make sure you come along to the Rocket Park Sunday June 5th to take part. This project takes place thanks to funding from The Albert Eden Local Board as part of the Neighbourhood Arts Project.
