I often get to see this hopeful neon sign on a Thursday when I finish yoga. I find it beautiful. The tentative comfort offered by its words is like a hug from a friend giving you a hot cuppa when shit has gone down. Its non-flashy mantra is a counterpoint to the bold prettiness of the neon letters.
The artwork Everything is going to be alright by Martin Creed, and it is on the side of the Christchurch Art Gallery that faces the Christchurch City Council offices.
This bit of shimmer is in the Re:Start mall, a shop full of sparkly frocks.
And The Crossing Carpark looks oddly fetching at night.
