More information about the walk:
"The lava flow comes from one of the older volcanoes on the Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland Isthmus, and is the longest flow in the area. Approximately eleven kilometres from source to toe, it extends into the Waitematā Harbour almost as far as Birkenhead. The flow is buried beneath subsequent lava flows from Maungawhau/Mt Eden and becomes visible beyond Western Springs to Meola and into the Waitemata Harbour. The walk is an extended, day-long drawing: as a group, we'll be carrying three long thin bronze poles which will make a transitory line through the neighbourhood. These mobile sculptures require us to navigate the terrain carefully, noticing the contours and junctures of urban space and working collectively to make the walk possible."
