A spirited conversation between two indomitable creative forces – one of New Zealand’s leading contemporary artists, Elizabeth Thomson, and arguably the country’s most internationally acclaimed 20th century artist, Len Lye. Together the artists’ work explores the unconscious and conscious human mind as well as some of the darker nooks and crannies of the scientific world.
