The evening before departing NZ for the Kermadecs the artists had dinner in Auckland. Discussion ran at a fever pitch about what lay before us. One of the many topics covered was that of L’Esperance Rock. We were told of this tiny island and how it was used as a fuel dump for emergency flights to Raoul.
I was gutted when we passed it in the night without seeing it. In my mind a Dr Suess like tower of 44 gallon drums was balanced on a barren rock.
On return to NZ I just had to create my interpretation of it.
I have no idea what it actually looks like and have no real desire to find out.
