In The web of time, countless intertwined strands connect numbers across time and space.
These numbers – scattered like stars in the night sky – represent meaningful dates in history, both collective and personal.
Berlin-based artist Chiharu Shiota says, ‘Numbers comfort us. We share dates that are important to us, and they help us understand ourselves.’
The web of time is part of Te Papa’s permanent collection.
