  • This typographic work attempts to explore theencounters and challenges of early European settlement in Wellington. While Māori recognised Europeans’ desire for land, fewcould understand the scale of settlement planned by the New Zealand Company –the expanding red cross of St George is emblematic of their imposing influence.Through judicious use of a photocopier and turps transfer, this work expressesthe struggle and conflict over cultural and terrestrial supremacy.
