100 Metre Poem Mystery — a poem to be saved!


Hidden in the middle of Wellington is New Zealand’s largest artwork, a poem on the foreshore that is 100 metres long. Who wrote it? Can it be saved before it perishes?

Thanks to the sleuths at the Dompost we now know the name of the poem and the author. It is ‘Ruamoko Crescent’ by David Eggleton. It was installed by Stewart Griffiths in 1994. So the mystery is solved. But now we need to muster support to save the poem from imminent destruction by – literally – time and tide.
