"Good work is not about the kind of communication that human beings do between each other, I think its something about communicating human condition or existence to something beyond itself"

What does it mean to research "mana" from a "wahine" perspective using a method that is "intuitive" coming from a Māori world view methodology while not losing the methodology to translation given it will sit within western research framework then make the work to exist beyond its existence.
