This site-specific art intervention at The Arcades Project uses a common commercial waste material – plastic packaging tape – to transform the iconic structure. Watch the live making of Ahorangi’s Spider over the course of the day and see how waste materials can be repurposed to create something beautiful for Christchurch.

This event is presented by Amiria Kiddle and others as part of FESTA 2016.

FESTA is a vibrant weekend festival celebrating the unique urban environment of Christchurch and the creative urban regeneration that has emerged from it.

The theme for FESTA 2016 is ‘We Have the Means’, which focuses on citizen-initiated urban regeneration and sustainability through the reuse of waste materials in design. The ‘means’ we are celebrating includes both the people of Christchurch and visitors to the city, who care about the city’s development and flourishing, and the materials that we are able to repurpose and divert from landfill, which are then used to create functioning, beautiful and interesting objects for Christchurch.

Our headline event, Lean Means – a spectacular temporary city made from ‘waste’ materials, is set to attract thousands and is live for one night only on Saturday 22 October (rain date 23 October).
