'Blue Series' (still images) and 'Symbiosis' (moving image) explore the Physalia utriculus (or bluebottles as they're commonly known). While seemingly a single animal, they are colonial organisms made up of polyps and medusa that work together as a single organism. Each organism specializes in either buoyancy, propulsion, predation, digestion or reproduction, while functioning separately they are unable to survive alone. Award winning artist Denise Batchelor first showed these works in Berlin in 2017 and this is the first time they have been shown in NZ.
