Get a glimpse of Ngaio's incredible work - Sixth Mass Extinction - here.
 
‘The work ‘Ascension’ exploits the beauty and fragility of glass capturing crystalline moments of contact and fracture. Earth systems exist in a state of equilibrium and one will prosper only at the expense of another. I incorporate traces of the natural phenomena of air, water, and light, alluding to ephemeral forces beyond our existence, looking for a dreamlike element, an unfolding and shifting between darkness and light. We live in a Post-Truth and an indisputably warming world. Climate change is an existential threat, one which will require us to work together as a global entity ensuring the survival of all living species.’
- Ngaio Fitzpatrick 2018
