Passing Time in Christchurch, New Zealand

Passing Time is by Auckland-based sculptor Anton Parsons, a graduate of the University of Canterbury’s School of Fine Arts. The work consists of a twisting ribbon of randomly linked boxes - with each box depicting one of the years between 1906 (founding of CPIT) and 2010 (the date of the sculpture’s installation). The work can be walked around, walked through, touched and sat on. “The winding form of the sculpture – placed on a street within the original 1851 grid plan commissioned by the Canterbury Association for their new settlement – is also a nod to the winding Avon River, an irregular feature of the landscape over which a street grid was placed,” says Anton Parsons.
