The Big Apple POA

Just north of the Waitomo turn-off is The Big Apple Cafe with its larger than life name-sake sculpture. We actually noticed this one over the Christmas break but it took a second road-trip to confirm the location and find it on the map. Part of the problem, which is also the reason we noticed it anew, is that The Big Apple has just had a pop make-over, now coated in a gleaming red finish compared to its earthier, more naturalistic FORMER LIVERY which, aside from the TELL-TALE BITE, blends with the surroundings. And if anyone is looking their own piece of rural paradise, it appears the owners are now looking for offers.

Art from Space is an exploration of art-related phenomena that manifests in interesting ways on Google’s aerial maps. It is also an experiment in curatorial practice; collecting, presenting and contextualising items in ways that users can explore, free of curator-imposed framing and sequencing. This blog is Art from Space’s developmental musings made public, where items are introduced to the project in real time, rather than awaiting the grand unveiling of a completed exhibition. Specific locations of interest are highlighted in CAPS and linked to a map for further exploration. Visit the mother ship HERE.
