In 2020 some of Philippa's seacharts have begun to re-imagine the Hauraki Gulf and our inner islands with a shifted world view. Familiar, recognisable islands such as Rangitoto, Waiheke, Browns Island lie alongside human forms presented not as distant recorders of the map or observers, but as islands themselves, part of the map itself. The human landforms are shown as content and peaceful, in harmony with the natural environment, and clearly part of nature, not separate from it. Navigating a new and positive way forward.
