Introduction

Martin Hill and Philippa Jones live in Wanaka and have worked together since 1994 making ephemeral environmental sculptures in nature that return to nature.

We spent five days in solitude on Dusky Sound’s Resolution Island. From climate scientists in McMurdo Sound, we had learned that beech trees once grew in Antarctica 14 million years ago, when its climate and atmospheric carbon levels were similar to Fiordland’s today. In our work, we
wanted to express a connection between these two areas.
Our sculptures are about climate change – a crisis solvable by a change to sound practice.
