    • A new giant squid specimen!
      • 2 Apr 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • A three-metre giant squid specimen washed up on a beach on Wellington’s South Coast yesterday (2nd April). In comparison with our colossal squid it’s a bit small, but because it’s small it’s interesting! Find out about the difference between Colossal and Giant squid. The squid was found in shallow water by Alana Spragg and her daughter Bella [...]

    • Weedy ferns
      • 23 Mar 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • Chris Horne of the Wellington Botanical Society recently sent me a fern frond they collected on one of their trips. Although the frond is small and lacking the diagnostic reproductive characters, I think it is the introduced holly fern (Cyrtomium falcatum). It looks like the shining spleenwort (Asplenium oblongifolium), but the flanges, or ‘teeth’, of the [...]

      • Te Papa's blog
      • The latest report on the squid work has come through from Hutch Wilco, one of our exhibition team. Hutch has been working on the squid project since May last year and has become “intimately” acquainted with the squid and its tank. He tells me that alterations to the tank have gone very smoothly. All the new attachments [...]

      • Te Papa's blog
      • The rare, tetraploid maidenhair spleenwort  (Asplenium trichomanes subsp. quadrivalens) has only recently been rediscovered in New Zealand.  Several people have contacted me with possible additional sightings. As described by the Scoop website, Jack Ritchie had a maidenhair spleenwort self-sow on a rock used to construct a water feature in his nursery, Tree Guys, in Otane. Jack [...]

      • Te Papa's blog
      • We have men at work on the squid tank again today. Working on the squid and its tank I caught up with Don, one of our contractors, just before he was heading off to lunch after a hard morning’s work on the tank. He’s putting in a second pump and filter system into one end of the [...]

      • 12 Mar 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • More news from the squid tank. This morning I caught up with Robert Clendon the conservator who is looking after the work on the squid. Over the past few weeks we’ve been a bit concerned about the hooks on the tentacles and the arms. It looked as though the hooks could be disappearing. Not something we wanted to [...]

      • 11 Mar 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • On Tuesday we started remedial work on the colossal squid and her tank. Things are going very well and to schedule. Yesterday we put up the barriers around the tank and lifted up the huge lid, using a forklift. We then drained most of the liquid out of the tank. That’s not as simple a task [...]

I’m pleased with the way the exhibition looks at Christchurch Art Gallery, especially as the exhibition designer and I worked on whole thing pretty much via phone and email. By the time I got there the show was hung, and [...]

    • What’s a punga?
      • 6 Mar 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • “Punga” is a quintessential Kiwi word, used to refer to tree ferns or, sometimes more specifically, the trunks of tree ferns.  But, no tree ferns were recorded by James Beever in his book A Dictionary of Maori Plant Names as being called punga by Māori.  I don’t know for sure, but I suspect that “punga” [...]

      • Rita Angus: Life & Vision opens at Christchurch Art Gallery this weekend. I’ll be heading down for the official opening tomorrow evening. On Saturday I’m doing a floortalk in the exhibition at noon, the first in what looks like a great line-up of events alongside the show. It’ll be nice to see the works again and [...]

      • Tyres - very important things! This weekend’s racing meet has been interesting in that we’ve had a variety of weather conditions - very wet on Saturday, slightly damp Sunday morning and dry in the afternoon, with the rain turning up YET AGAIN for a bit of fun. I was talking with one of the Porsche team mechanics about who [...]

      • Manfeild track has some great straights to get your speed up - and some tricky corners. My favourite (because I’m a ghoul) is the first corner at the end of the straight where the cars start off from. Lots of cars spun out on that corner over the weekend - no driver was hurt, most being able to point [...]

    • Smoothly does it
      • 1 Mar 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • The shape of all these cars is incredibly important - they’re designed to move as smoothly as possible through the air. Sticky out bits causes friction and can slow you down. But if you are too aerodynamic and travelling at very high speeds this can get furry when you talk about handling and control - this [...]

      • This area is where cars are randomly pulled in and checked out incredibly thoroughly. The rules and regulations are very strict so this is one way to make sure they’re adhered to. No Police Officers to ask for your Drivers Licence though - some of the guys here wouldn’t have one anyway - the youngest driver [...]

      • Unfortunately I’m no spring chicken and you’d think that I would be pretty knowledgeable about my likes and dislikes by now. But I’ve surprised myself - I think I may be… *sigh*… a racing petrolhead groupie. You see, I don’t even know the proper name to call myself! It hit me as soon as I parked the car [...]
