French sculptor and graffiti artist Elparo specialises in structures created from recycled wood, often final act of beauty for the wood before it ends its working life. For light Nelson his Shapedshift is a night and day installation around the pathway in the Queens Gardens. Walk through the wood tunnel during the day, and at night see it shift into neon string art.

Elparo is spending a year in New Zealand and has walked the Te Araroa Trail and created work for festivals such as CubaDupa.
