Observations of Life in New Zealand (and sometimes beyond) through art, architecture, photography, travel, tourism, design, food, the quirky, the bizarre, the comedic - a few of the things I am passionate about. This is my world - a world of contemplations, observations and small adventures.

Here’s a bright idea for Christchurch City Council to consider – now that they’ll be hosting the Ellerslie International Flower Show (to be rebranded shortly) in March 2009. Fresh in my In Box this afternoon, a Press Release from Chicago about Chicago’s favourite Springtime pageant, Tulip Days on The Magnificent Mile, presented by Bank of America. In what seems like a brilliant idea to me, they’ve organised some of Chicago’s top ARCHITECTS to design kinetic art sculptures for the event. Some of the world’s top (Chicago-based) names in architecture have committed to creating moving sculptures designed with sustainable materials – recycled paper, plastic, glass, wood and more – spending no more than US$5,000 on their sculpture design and construction. Something like this might be an edgy, intelligent addition to a sea of blooms and re-worked garden designs. www.themagnificentmile.com
