Well known for his large-scale sculptures, Graham Bennett has created this signed limited edition wall sculpture Connect to celebrate Brain Tree endeavours (the establishment of a facilty to support Cantabrians with neurological conditions). Inspired by the harakeke binding and linkages supporting the floats/anchors (karihi) on a Māori fishing net in the Canterbury museum, Connect hints at cerebral cicuitry such as the Willis Circle of Brain Connections.
Other interpretations suggest the knots draw together four ties referencing the four dimensions of Te Whare Tapa Whā and/or the interweaving of people with support communities or neurological organisations.
