Te Pōpapakina and Te Aopapakina are the dark and the light beyond, this pou whenua was filmed during the day across the road from the light boxes on Courtenay Place. Located within The Rongoā Teahouse an accompaniment to the Community Rongoā Forest established this year.  The camera faced the trees that are planted between the light boxes; the people, traffic and energetic activities of Te Aro are recorded over time.
