Cicada

There are about 2,500 species of cicada around the world, and many remain unclassified. So far 42 species that are found nowhere else in the world have been recorded in New Zealand.* Scientific name unknown, locality unknown.


Artistic and Curatorial Process

These objects are replicas of artifacts imagined as lost, hidden or misregistered during the Museum of New Zealand's tenure in the former Museum Building on Buckle St, now occupied by Massey University's College of Creative Arts. The objects have been created through a process of drawing, digital 3D rendering, and finally printing with an Open Source 3-dimensional printer – the RepRap.

Note

This is an experimental web-exhibition, and as such is a quasi-virtual mirror of Bronwyn_Holloway-Smith's work. Her website and project page is: http://bronwyn.co.nz/projects/gifts.html
