Final Act pays tribute to the idea of the home as an icon and is also being presented as a solo exhibition at the Canterbury Museum until March 23.

In November, artist Ian Strange teamed up with cinematographer Alun 'Albol' Bollinger (Lord of the Rings, Heavenly Creatures) on a project centred around suburban homes in Christchurch's red zone. 

Final Act pays tribute to the idea of the home as an icon and is also being presented as a solo exhibition at the Canterbury Museum until March 23. Watch it below - it's a moving piece of work and well worth the 2.5 minutes out of your day.
