Using found objects, recycled materials and fallen native timbers, The Wave examines the complex emotions on both sides of the asylum seeker debate. From general observations to profound personal accounts, this multi-layered installation focuses upon aspirations common to all cultures and human need; the wish to belong to a place and the desire in times of crisis for a safe haven.
