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.

That is amazing sculpture. How did the person every figure it out so it could be viewed from many angles?
