Beauty in Chaos... Textile Art in Christchurch, New Zealand

Currently, I'm visiting Christchurch, New Zealand. My friend Betty, a native of Christchurch has been taking me around, and it is a surreal experience to see the devastation of a city I've visited on several occasions before. The earthquakes of 2011 have completely changed the face of the city, and reconstruction work continues.

Amidst all the chaos that still exists in the city is the Transitional Cathedral, designed by Shiguru Ban. Here is the outside, and a few shots of the inside.




What you are seeing is cardboard tubes, and laminated wood, amongst other things.

The alter was decorated in the most beautiful textile art; a quilted fabric rich in color.
Here are a few shots:





As in all things, beauty exists, and fiber arts play a role.

Well explained Digital Signage using flypaper. I don't any words as you described everything very well. It is great and easy way of showing multiple things together at one place.

These open source programs can be good, but I think the problem with them is that they do not offer as many capabilities as paid programs.
