Ephermeral City, Cardboard Replica Cathedral, Christchurch Arts Festival
Built using just cardboard boxes and tape, this cardboard replica version of the Cathedral was constructed yesterday in Market Square in the Arts Centre as part of the Arts Festival. It seemed very fitting that this was on display this weekend, the very weekend that the Anglican Synod voted in favour of a full restoration of the ChristChurch Cathedral. It will take seven years to rebuild apparently.
The cardboard version was going to be demolished at 3 pm today, but the rain got to it earlier than that – with it collapsing on its own.
