A new way to discover and experience iconic artwork created from ancient materials by sculptor Gill Gatfield.
Use the app to place the artwork, explore, add shadow, and hear the sounds of native New Zealand birdlife. Capture the sculpture within your environment in a unique photo to share with family and friends.
Explore the 3m/10ft high Native Tongue XR, an abstract figure carved from the heartwood of a giant tree over 45,000 years old. Experience the natural grain of this rare New Zealand treasure buried and preserved in a prehistoric forest at the end of the last Ice Age. Predating the invention of language, the alpha native is shaped as the pronoun ‘I’ and number ‘One’, reconnecting humanity to the Earth.
Audio soundtrack offers insights into the unique materials and multi-layered ideas held within the artwork. Through the world of extended reality, Gatfield Studio creates public art and sculptures that delight and inspire audiences worldwide.
