Level Playing Field

Level Playing Field (2013) was a temporary public work by artist David Cross which was designed to socially engage with the people and place of earthquake ravaged Christchurch New Zealand. In February 2011, Christchurch was hit by a number of earthquakes the largest of which measured a magnitude 7 killing 185 people and levelling the city to the ground. Christchurch has since been considered as the worst damaged city since the firebombing of Dresden in WWII.
