A little house with attitude

A whole city block in Christchurch is dedicated to the Arts centre. Originally part of the university it has clositers and staircases and towers and is a very Oxbridge kind of place. Now its dedicated to artists studios, a cinema, a theater (where one evening we saw a very good production of Cole Porter's Anything Goes), galleries and places to eat. On the weekends there are extra craft and food markets. It is a delightful place to be inspired and to relax.I also got to meet reknown weaver Anne Field in her studio there who has a loom you can try - hmmm, might have to get me one of those....!.
These photos are of a simple yet fascinating piece of art strung between two buildings. Like a scribble in the sky the wire form seems to change as you walk around it.
