Rubble to Riches (Auckland University of Technology, Spatial Design)

The team members are Madi Christian, Ben Brebner & Aston Wainhouse. Here is their description of their installation for Lean Means:

The Rubble to Riches installation takes an often overlooked form of waste – rubble – and transforms it to bring it new life. With this work we question where all the ‘waste’ from demolished buildings and houses went or currently goes.

We gave ourselves the challenge of seeing if we could use literal leftovers or pieces of disaster to make something beautiful for Christchurch and to present it as part of a night of colour, lights and community. The rubble has been sourced from post-quake demolition sites in Christchurch and painted on site with left over paints sourced from stores around the city.
