Bloom where you’re planted

And I need to take on my own suggestion (ie. bloom where I am planted, or in this case where my animation is planted) and not get stressed about a silver, self-cleaning toilet block that sprung up in the time between choosing the wall for my site-specific animation and the date for the SALA walking tour with projector transported on a special bike.

This is what the wall looked like when I chose it (note the big pole in left foreground):

wall near new bus station

and this is it now:

wall with new shiny development
wall with new shiny entity

This is a picture of where the resourceful team were able to project the animated 80 seconds through between the shiny silver construction and the big pole:

Here is the link to how my work looked on the wall. Thanks Doll Yoko for the photo and for putting the photo on your art/free & open source software/politics website. I appreciate it. That link is now broken so I will upload the pic here for your enjoyment. Thanks to Doll Yoko for giving me a copy of the photos she took:

Will let you know when I have figured out how to post the animation to YouTube, and you can have a look.

I just noticed I’m actually not complaining, I just thought it was all an interesting development and outcome, and a personalised side story I was able to add to the mosaic.

The walk as a whole was really great. Well organised, well presented, well-chosen matches of film to the various locations. People were great to work with, beyond the call of duty helpfulness. (Thanks for the font-save Luku!)

By the way, at the “Duck Park” down the street the happy ducks have 7 ducklings, growing up fast!
