Standing Tall #18

This was a simple design but an effective one: a mosaic of tiny square mirrors stuck all over the surface of the sculpture. Called Reflecting Changes for obvious reasons, and created by Sarina Dickson, this giraffe was located at the Agropolis Urban Farm, a section in the middle of the city that holds garden plots and a bike-hiring shed.
Much like a giant glitter ball it caught the light from whatever angle, and was apparently meant to reflect (see what I did there) the changing world around it – which is apt considering Agropolis used to be the site of one of many buildings that have since been demolished in the earthquake.
It was easy to get a little hypnotised by its reflective surface: seeing everything in miniature hundreds of times over has that effect on the eyes.
