S&T’s Wellington studio are excited to be a part of Wellington’s second instalment of PARK(ing) Day organised by Wellington Sculpture Trust, in association with Wellington City Council. By utilising temporary public open spaces artists, architects, students and other Wellingtonians will have the opportunity to engage with the sites enlisted throughout the central city on Wednesday 9 March.

Ellen, Shannon, Marianne, Alex, Nigel H, Clara, Patrick, Callum, Cyril, and Pontus have worked on our entry enlisted ‘Environmentatron’ - a virtual reality that presents scenarios of Wellington and the potential effects global warming will have on our future city. The virtual reality sets will present the current day setting (our carpark), altered either adversely or positively, dependant on the outcome participants answer to a series of questions related to domestic contributions towards global warming.

When: 8am – 6pm, Wednesday 9 March 2016.

Where: We will be set up on Grey Street in between Customhouse Quay and Featherston Street opposite the Intercontinental Hotel. Throughout the day there will be at least two S&T staff to guide you through our installation. A map will be available from each parking space or you can download your copy here.

Park(ing) day also coincides with National Walk-to-Work Day, so why not call by on your walk to, or from, work.
