View From the Studio

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'View From the Studio'. The project description reads, "When the public debates were heated over the future of the severely damaged Christchurch Cathedral, I installed this work in the Re:START mall precinct as my personal statement that I believe the damage to the building is an important historical document of the earthquake, and should be retained as a memorial for future generations. This was a typical view from my studio in the Government Life Building in Cathedral Square; a precious memory of pre-earthquake Christchurch for me".

A photograph of a detail of Mike Hewson's installation 'View from the Studio' in Re:Start Mall. An outline of the cathedral's tower is sketched on plywood, accompanied by the words, "Mike Hewson 2012. 'View From Studio'. (We should try keep some part of the cathedral rather than just demo-ing it)".
