1. Get tagged. Sarah Read’sThis Too Shall Pass is a series of tags attached to cards with images of the Christchurch earthquake. They have been lovingly stitched by members of the New Zealand jewellery community in solidarity with The National, a jewellery gallery which seeks to open again despite losing its building. For $10, you can take one of these cards away. It makes a touching gesture of encouragement, and in the process you can discover gold underneath. Remember, this week is the anniversary of the first Christchurch earthquake.
2. Find a fortune. As a reward for those to explore the exhibition deeply, there’s a message with information about how you can obtain a gold charm for yourself.
3. Arrange the flowers. Like in Facebook, this is how you “like” a work.
Beyond this, there’s been great interest by visitors in obtaining other charms on display. Go to the artist’s page on the website for details.
