‘As far as eye can see’  was a project created by a pair of crafty work colleagues who saw the devastation of the Christchurch earthquakes and wanted to do something to revitalise the art-scene in the city. Lorinda Currow and Steph Morison imagined crocheting a quilt from individual squares and using it as an exhibition piece for SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Week, then auctioning the artwork off to raise money and allowing smaller donation by individual square sponsorship. Initially, I volunteered as a crocheter, but soon found my time my craft skills involved custom PHP, sewing together the virtual world that Lorinda and Steph had dreamed.

Each square showcased on the homepage features details about it’s creator, how many stitches were involved and allows visitors to the site to sponsor the square. This required extensive customised PHP coding to integrate with the design imagined by Steph. Additionally the site includes an auction, tally of funds raised and other wordpress blog features.

Visit ‘As Far as Eye Can See’ http://asfaraseyecansee.com/ have a play and sponsor a square for Christchurch.
