This is the first staircase design from my thesis for the ‘Sculpture on the Gulf’ walk on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. The interactive piece identifies the threshold point at the start of the walk. Visitors can first view this marker when arriving on the island via boat. From the water the shape appears as the standard form of a staircase. However, when people approach the structure it is revealed that the sculpture is actually made up of a range of objects. Each piece represents a different part of the staircase which can be experienced in a number of ways.
