So here are a little more photographs I took at Christchurch while hopping on and off the trams. I understood that they have been taking years long restoration process coming through since 2011 quake. Some area were rebuilt while some area were in progress, or left as empty lots, which looked like as if time was stopped on the spot.
What impressed me though was that there were number of murals / street arts presented in Christchurch next to those spaces or gaps. It’s like the city was like art gallery. It looked like as if the arts took the mission thats for filling those empty spaces and gaps by those unique art works, which it could have made people despair if there were’t at all.
Some spots were heartbreaking to see for me, but at the same time, I felt people’s energy and pride via those stuff.
I took some photographs of graffitis / murals in Christchurch, and this was one of them.
This was my first visit to Christchurch but even I found that the level of damage of the quake it hit them in 2011 was left in city in in every aspect, and one of which was that there are still a lot of vacant lots occupied in the central Christchurch. Restoration process should need them to take time by many reasons. My hope and thought is at them.
What impressed me there was that there were a lot of street arts and murals in the center of Christchurch, as if they filled up emptiness with the arts. I would like to post more when I am back.
