Shelley Jacobson: Surface Expressions

12 November 2016 - 11 May 2017

Auckland-based Shelley Jacobson presents an iteration of her publication project Surface Expressions, in which she explores the Wairakei geothermal area in the central North Island through images and found text. Jacobson is particularly interested in the human use of this landscape over time, including its status as a world-renowned tourist destination in the late nineteenth century, the harnessing of its energy for electricity in the mid-twentieth century, and its human-made geothermal attractions today.
