All Join Hands art sale with Agent Ali at the Vine Trust

“All Join Hands” art sale with Agent Ali at the Vine Trust in Leith tonight. Contributed some art and did some projecting as part of Guerrilla Projections. Tried projecting across the water to the hull of the orange ship but didn’t factor in the powerful harbour lights (which aren’t on during the day and not obvious) pointing straight back at the projector. I also couldn’t get closer due to the water so couldn’t narrow the focus enough to just hit the hull – meaning half the image was lost above the hull or water. But it worked OK on the bus side as an alternative.

Nice weather, lovely people, beautiful art and a great night. Thank you Agent Ali x

censorship continues – Edinburgh Council does not like breasts

so I had a visit from the council lackeys yesterday who cautioned me for putting up images on public buildings. there is one in particular that both Out of the Blue and Edinburgh Council feel is misogynist. so today she was covered up.

Portobello Projections – sunset and stars

was out doing some guerilla projections last night – first up some great NASA footage from the space station – these are edits from crew movies shot as the space station circled the globe.

projections were shot around midnight on 8th July 2016 on an eerily deserted Portobello Promenade in Edinburgh.
