To celebrate New Zealand's first ever indigenously led holiday of Matariki, an immersive light and sound installation illuminated the meaning of Matariki in a free nightly show at the Stardome Observatory and Planetarium which sits at the base of the Maunga. Matariki Lights combines moving pillars of light with waves of sound composition infused with taonga pūoro to celebrate the traditional phases of Matariki celebration. 9 beams soaring to a 1000 metres in the sky represent the 9 stars of Matariki, and connect Ranginui to Papatūānuku.
A stunning and contemporary approach to celebrating Aotearoa's first ever indigenous led holiday of Matariki which utilised light and sound to tell the narratives of Matariki which reached local and international audiences.
