In Christchurch, New Zealand, 10 massive optical illusion-inducing mixed-media art pieces by Mike Hewson pay homage to the former Christchurch Normal School which opened in 1876.

The building, completely renovated for apartment and retail use in 1981 and renamed Cranmer Courts, was damaged badly in the February 2012 magnitude 6.3 earthquake and it is now destined for demolition.

Before it is gone forever, Hewson wanted to pay homage to the building that used to house a vibrant community. He covered the total of 130 square meters of plywood with mixed-media images depicting artists and others who lived and worked in the building.

Private donations and Hewson’s own money covered the $15,000 installation costs. New Zealand-born (in 1985) Mike Hewson is a civil engineer, graduate of Canterbury University (2007). He has worked as a civil engineer in Port Hedland in Western Australia, but has travelled regularly to New Zealand to complete works of art there. He will move permanently back to New Zealand next month and focus on his art full time. – Tuija Seipell (The Cool Hunter)

Eve is Confectionary Aisle’s submission to the V48 Hours Film Festival New Zealand.

We think its a great work of film, considering that the team only had 48 hours from conceptualization, writing, scripting, shooting on location, editing, putting the audio together and then, last but not the least, rendering the final video! Phew.

Watch it. (Go to video link to see full credits)

A bunch of Majestic videos are currently being showcased on the new video channel called “OurTube.”

Our Tube is created from the idea that most videos created in Christchurch won’t necessarily make it onto TV therefore there is the need for an alternative platform that can showcase these videos. This is where OurTube comes in as a video channel displaying Christchurch’s stories, music, arts, performances and general earthquake recovery videos. Founder, John McNeil who created the site has dubbed it “YouTube for Christchurch.”

Take a look at the site here:
