Dunedin artist Aroha Novak with her just completed installation Cascade at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery yesterday.

The work is part of "Four: New Art from Dunedin", an exhibition of four artists starting today.

Ms Novak said the construction of the installation had been challenging, but "everything has gone according to plan".

The piece contained 4800 litres of water, and weighed almost five tonnes, but the floor had a base of steel reinforced concrete, and could take the weight.

Two pumps took the water from the pool and cascaded it back down. Ms Novak said successfully completing the installation felt "fantastic".
