Colour Box


CPIT Art & Design has partnered with the 2013 Christchurch Arts Festival to bring colour to the city. CPIT students are designing repeated pattern motifs in colours that evoke joy and movement. The main project will be installed in September on the Artboxes and in the Sumner Art window.

The project is named after Len Lye's animated short film from 1935, in which colours and shapes 'dance' to syncopated jazz music. Lye, who is originally from Christchurch, went on to become an international legend of kinetic art and abstract film. In turn his spirit animates this project to 'turn up the heat on winter' with art!
