An inflatable artwork called Arboria has been set up in Cathedral Square as part of the Christchurch Arts Festival.

The bright and colourful artwork, designed by British group Architects of Air, can be inflated in just 15 minutes. Each structure, known as a luminarium, look like a series of geometric shapes from the outside. But, once inside, visitors can explore a labyrinth of colour and curiosity as sunlight filters through the different materials.

Visitors can experience Arboria from 11am to 5pm on weekdays and 10am to 5pm at the weekend until September 13th.
