As Far As Eye Can See

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'As Far As Eye Can See'. The project description reads, "Twenty-two Adelaide women have taken up crochet hooks to help refocus attention on post-earthquake Christchurch. The result is a gallery-size, giant eye artwork on display in the Colombo. Some Christchurch craft artists made a local response, and the two artworks hung together in the window of a vacant shop".
