'6 Ideas from the Database of Happiness'
Headlands, Sculpture on the Gulf

This was a temporary outdoor installation in which my aim was to configure a group of sculptures which stood out against the Waiheke backdrop. I created six sculptures. Some were blob-like and slightly monstrous in their form, whilst others were gentler forms. All were brightly coloured. I was interested in evoking the idea of a children’s play area gone awry. The title alluded to the possibility that the objects are clues as to ‘how to be happy’, which in itself suggested someone was not entirely satisfied with their lot. I was therefore interested in the duality of this statement.
