We Come From the Sea, We Seek Higher Ground | Brydee Rood 2017 | Installation at Artweek Auckland with Heart of the City. We Come From the Sea, We Seek Higher Ground in Durham Street East suggests a vessel washed up by a surging wave, dumped at the feet of city dwellers at a point 200m inland from the city’s original shoreline and quiescent beneath a skyline of stormy fragments. The work contemplates issues of climate change, rising tides, changing environments and survival. Materials: Bear Grylls Survival Blankets, Bells, Kayak, Oyster Shells. Funded by Auckland Council and Heart of the City, delivered in partnership with Artweek Auckland.
