One of Urbis Designday’s major sponsors, HP, joined a dozen art students enrolled at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design down on Auckland’s waterfront on Designday. Their collaboration? Mini art installations constructed within each of the six interesting and raw spaces known as the ‘Silo Six’. 

The pieces featured on the day ran the gamut from a piece of well-manicured lawn to a room filled with printed pages of text to a smoke-creating machine. There were ice blocks by Nice Blocks to revive weary Designday punters and thanks to the HP technology installed in one of the silos, visitors were able to vote for their favourite artwork. The winner was Leah Surynt who contributed two pieces to the exhibition: Do Your Dishes and 3/3 Publication, a collaboration with fellow students Luke Jenkins and Michelle So.
