It is humbling to be a part of the 2015 South Pacific Games through Makoda Productions, the company responsible for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Games which are to be staged here in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. This event will see the inclusion of countries right around the South Pacific Region and will be televised internationally. The opening and closing ceremonies will one of the highlights and I am glad to be working with a team of international and local artists and specialists in designing and building props for the ceremonies using bamboo and cane. I will be able update this website with images of the work after the completion of the ceremonies.
The task at hand is challenging and interesting and has enabled me to rediscover the forms of some of traditional structures and objects which previously I paid little attention to. It is wonderful experience.
I will however be able to update the site with pictures of another concept that is unfolding and I hope to do this over the course of this week.
