This project exists online as a virtual journal for those wishing to find it: The Graveyard Snail
This body of work engages with the area in Auckland known as Grafton Gully. Before colonisation this area was a rich food basket and lush area of bush and water. In early post-Colonial times it became the site for the largest cemetery in Auckland, housing the dead from Anglican, Catholic and Jewish communities. The 1960s saw the bridging of the Gully and a mass disinterment of these graves to make way for a large motorway nexus.
This is a transitional landscape, one that has registered our varying preoccupations with nature, death and the movement of people and things. Verdant valley, consecrated ground, multi-laned highway, stoner retreat, vagrant shelter, site for the new glittering Auckland School of Business.
