Sounds Of Sea is a set of sculptures streching along the waterfront of Jellicoe harbour in Auckland city. The typology of the pieces is a reminder to the history of the site, and its on-going role, as an active harbour. The airventilation funnels and speaking tubes used on ships are re-interpretated into sculptures that deliver the sounds of the sea underneath. The largest of the sculptures serve as places to sit in.
