Goodbye to all that, with added spraycans

by Donna Robertson

There are ways of saying goodbye to your home. Ours involved realising the garage was getting demolished too, and grabbing stuff out of it as quick as we could.

At 38 Cranford Street, they are saying Haere ra with style. Ren Bell and his artist friends have made it a work of art.

The house was open this weekend Friday 15 August to Sunday 17 August, so people could have a look. I went in a few times; each day it drew me back in.

One of the guys reckoned they had used more than 300 cans.

Each room had its own style

Doorways and corners, hallways, the lines between walls and floors – all took on new life.

Thanks Rob, the house is still there as of yesterday. Things move slow, then fast round these parts.
