Swan upping

In our digital age it's always interesting to see the digital transformed back into the analogue. This pixelated image in tile was created by the ceramicist John Parker for the new New Lynn railway station in Auckland. Why a couple of swans you ask? Turns out that the clay for Crown Lynn pottery was dug out of the ground almost where the station is now located and, of course, the swans are pure Crown Lynn.
