It is the starting image which I would like to manipulate to reflect the differences and the similarities between the Maori and Chinese cultures. Maori and Chinese can builds understanding and empathy as they have a shared experience of being discriminated against in New Zealand.  According to a  2012 report (Working Together: Racial discrimination in New Zealand),  Asian has the highest levels of racial discrimination, followed by Maori.

Assignment ideas

For the movie theme. I am thinking the “Transformers” movie.

Would it be a good idea to have a “Transformer”  at the bottom of a Auckland volcano? I can take photos of Mt Wellington volcano and the miniature of a Transformer, then composite and manipulate them.

For the public debate image, Auckland transportation would be a good issue to tickle.
