The human art exhibition On Display is preformed in the Octagon as part of the Dunedin Fringe Festival yesterday.

A collaboration between Touch Compass and Gasp Dance collective in Dunedin, the performance is a commentary on the body as a spectacle and society's obsession with body image.

Viewers are invited to photograph, film, walk through and create their own human sculptures.

The performance celebrates diverse communities living in New Zealand and began as an annual worldwide event to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

There will be four more performances - two today and two tomorrow - in the Octagon.
