Is it an egg or a fruit? A seedpod or a spacepod? Step inside Barbarian’s mysterious nest-like capsule and add your voice to an exchange of views around a topical question. Charismatic hosts will guide you through the experience and help you interact with this intriguing object as it pops up in locations around Pōneke.

Eggfruit is a mobile recording booth that gathers and broadcasts the thoughts and ideas of the people of Aotearoa New Zealand. It’s a space for exchange and reflection, developed as an alternative method of public consultation around issues of national identity (eg. the failed flag referendum of 2016). Eggfruit offers an experimental new approach.
