|SYDNEY， May 12 (Xinhua) -- A group of Chinese artisans from the city of Zigong in China's Sichuan province are hard at work in Sydney's west preparing for the world's largest light， music and ideas festival -- Vivid Sydney.
The 30 Chinese artists are constructing 43 animal shaped lanterns that will be featured at Sydney's Taronga Zoo as part of the event.
Lucy Keeler， creative director behind the project， told Xinhua on Wednesday it was great to have both cultures working together.
"Well this is the first time this team in full force from Sichuan is making work for the biggest light festival in the world，"Keeler said.
"It is an absolutely extraordinary experience. The combination between the western style and the Chinese techniques is just incomparable and we're really excited about this particular festival."
Some of the lanterns constructed by the Chinese team will be more than 7 meters long.
Keeler said the project had taken 13 months of planning， although the build process was restricted to 40 days.
"There's 43 light sculptures so that's more than one a day，"she noted.
Keeler said it was great to be working with such fine Chinese artisans.
"On every level there is Australian artists working with Chinese artists in the sculpture， in the electrics， in the fabric， in every single level and we are absolutely thrilled to be working with the Chinese here."
The lanterns will be used to represent critically endangered species at Sydney's Taronga Zoo such as the Asian elephant， Sumatran tiger and bilby.
Vivid Sydney will commence in late May and run for 23 days.
In less than a decade the Internet arrived from nowhere and conquered the world. Whereas prior to the Internet the developed world has benefited from new know-how for years before it eventually filters through to the less developed world Authentic Jake Muzzin Jersey , the Internet a real leveller. By being available to everyone it has introduced something new, or been responsible for changing the way certain things are done.
An example of something new would be Facebook, that has brought people together in a way that was not possible to do before; an example of a revolutionised process would be in conducting surveys and questionnaires.
There are very few people who would ever argue against the benefits of a survey when they are used to determine the level of customer or employee satisfaction Jeff Carter Jersey , gauge public opinion or provide market research.
However, historically the reason that surveys have been used sparingly was that the effort required to create the survey in the first place was cumbersome, and the effort and cost needed to distribute the survey Tyler Toffoli Jersey , gather the results and then analyse the results were rarely insignificant.
For many, the results, regardless of how helpful they proved to be Tanner Pearson Jersey , were typically tinged with a ‘not again’ feeling having experienced the quantity of effort that used to be required.
Then along came the Internet to revolutionise the process.
Although a word-processor holds untold advantages over pen and paper for general writing and correspondence, with regards to something specific like writing and designing a questionnaire it’s to some extent as practical as using a slippery eel.
It can be accomplished, in the same way as a hammer can be used with a screw Derek Forbort Jersey , it’s far from perfect. Word processors are good for correspondence, documentation and basic writing; spreadsheets are perfect for coping with numbers and on-line survey websites are ideal for preparing questionnaires.
With an online questionnaire website questionnaires can be created, designed and easily modified using any browser by the use of quick and simple interfaces. All the difficult formatting is taken care of as Alex Iafallo Jersey , unlike a word-processor, the questionnaire software knows all there is to know about surveys.
The Internet is the most effective form of global communication known to man. Gone are the days of having to print hardcopy surveys and questionnaires, stuffing them into envelopes and mailing them Mike Cammalleri Jersey , all costly and time consuming. With the web survey as soon as it has been created they are good to go normally by sending the link to the survey in an electronic mail or by establishing a link to the survey on a website; processes that are both speedy and virtually free.
Where as in the past completed surveys Hosted Questionnaires and Surveys needed to be posted back and then collated by transferring the information into a database either manually or by utilizing some type of optical reader, on-line surveys update the database in real-time.
The Internet has revolutionised the whole process and in doing so has made something that was thought of useful, but costly and cumbersome Adrian Kempe Jersey , into a resource that is so quick and simple that surveys and questionnaires can be used to bring advantages to many other everyday areas.
With survey web sites the obstacles to conducting questionnaires have been torn down. Now they provide a cost effective and easy resource that’s open to not only the small charity and local community group but additionally the largest of the world’s multi-nationals.
No longer are geographical borders of any concern a survey can now be published to the whole world as simply and for the same cost as a local or internal group.
Easier to Test
In addition, surveys can now be easily tested from beginning to end to make sure that not only is the questionnaire straightforward for the respondents to complete but also that the information collated is in a suitable format to provide the required intelligence.
Easier to Complete
No longer is there the need to ask respondents to skip certain questions based on their previous responses, with on-line surveys and questionnaires you .
