Casts of broken footpaths near and around Karangahape Rd, Tāmaki Makaurau preserve markings from tools and previous layers of broken grout.

Lockdowns brought repair and construction of the footpath to a halt. During this lull in productivity and progress I collected these casts to admire the well-used areas we travel through, to acknowledge and contemplate the beauty of worn complexities, and explore the idea that meaningful production should be a subset of ‘care’.
