Harbour Wave is a massive, curved, transparent wave installation, crested with rows of coloured lights, that ‘breaks’ across a wharf at Walsh Bay.

While the form was inspired by the destructive might and power of tsunamis (in Japanese tsu means ‘harbour’ and nami means ‘waves’), the artwork’s deeper meaning relates to the psychology of dreams.

Some dream analysts believe that those seeing a tsunami in their dreams are being overwhelmed by repressed feelings that are rising to the surface.
