Mood blanket for Burns

A 40m-long hand-knitted blanket adorns the Robert Burns statue in the Octagon as part of Dunedin Fringe Festival.

The blanket is the centrepiece of the site-specific installation The Heaven Inside by Dunedin artist Wesley Fourie.

The blanket served as a means to investigate and document the artist's mood over the eight months of its creation.
