Watch: Bill Culbert installing 'Daylight flotsam Venice' (2013) and 'Drop' (2013)

Artist Bill Culbert created 'Daylight flotsam Venice' (2013) and 'Drop' (2013) as part of his exhibition at the Venice Biennale, where he represented New Zealand in 2013. Here, he installs the work for their first exhibition in New Zealand at Te Papa.

Light has been Culbert’s medium and subject for decades. Daylight flotsam Venice (2013) and Drop (2013) explore the interplay between fluorescent light tubes and everyday objects.

"The simplest and cheapest material to me is often the most exciting, no matter how beaten up."
