By 2009 over 700 New Zealanders had died of HIV/AIDS. In a large-scale international project, friends and family produced quilts in memory of those who had died. With more effective treatment resulting in a falling death rate, quilt-making had stopped by 2010. The quilts, increasingly fragile after years of exhibition, were given a new, virtual life on the internet.
