is a prominent atua (deity) within Māori cosmological narratives. He is a son of Papatūānuku (Earth Mother) and Ranginui (Sky Father) and was the one who split his parents apart in order to create the world of light. A number of his brothers tried to do this - however to no avail. Only Tāne was able to split them apart as he was innovative in his approach - he was creative. This work pays homage to the innovator… the space maker… the creative…


Tāne was presented as a digital sculpture through augmented reality within "Nuit in your Neighborhood", a sub-section of "Nuit Blanche" held annually in Toronto, Canada and curated by the formidable Julie Nagam.
