he ao, he ao tea, he ao tea roa!

a cloud,
a white cloud,
a long white cloud!

The museum Te Papa is one of the must visits when in Wellington.
I loved the art display on 5th floor, but unfortunately photographing was not allowed there.

My favourite was an installation by artist John Reynolds - Clouds -

7081 white square canvases, 10cm x 10cm each, painted with a phrase or word from the Dictionary of New Zealand English. He used a silver oil paint marker, so when you move you can read some words but others are lost due to the silvery reflection of the text.

You can see a video of the installation here
