Passing Time

Anton Parsons’ Passing Time was created for the sixth SCAPE Season, and installed only a few days prior to the shaking Ōtautahi Christchurch experienced on 22 February 2011.

Passing Time features twisting boxes depicting each year between 1906 (the foundation year of Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, CPIT) and 2010 (the date of the sculpture’s production).

Commissioned by: The Christchurch City Council and CPIT
