ChCh:Changes

This ChChChanges project consists of a tour of frames located specifically to highlight various places, rebuild success stories, sites awaiting development or to focus on unique points and gatherings of people that constantly change over time.

Rapid, continual change

Christchurch is a city undergoing rapid, continual change, with the majority of the central city experiencing a major facelift over the past ten years.

This ChChChanges project consists of a tour of frames located specifically to highlight various places, rebuild success stories, sites awaiting development or to focus on unique points and gatherings of people that constantly change over time.

Multiple changes can be seen across the built and natural environment, or within the social realm. The frames are a tool through which to view them! Our intention with the project is that each individual frame will prompt a response to a place from those who look at it, facilitating thoughts and conversations on the changes in Christchurch.

We invite you to pause and reflect on what you can see through each frame; to develop a connection with the place, the city and its history, its communities, the environment and the people. You could take a look every time you pass and see what you notice change or record a frame of time with a photo and create a timelapse of Christchurch in change.
