A lovely film of Lightweight in Sunderland

Image from video of LW in Mowbray Park, Sunderland
Watch this two-minute film about one of our visits to the lovely Mowbray Park in December. This shows our wireless face recognition camera taking a series of face capture images of participants that appear a few minutes later on the globe. We see their images animated as cherubs fluttering amidst a range of different video background, or on a Carousel of seasonal images.

For the Love Of It 13: Bristol

FLOI-13: For the Love Of It
48 hours of inspiration, creation & fun - a cross between a weekend long party and workshops and skill sharing and inspiration, artists led and working best with a broad mixture of people attending. It isn't free but the costs (£34) cover food and venue hire. Last year many who came found it really inspiring and encouraging to be around other artists. We try to change the format and venue every year so it's always a bit of a surprise. Part of the Street Arts world? then it would be great if you could come to Bristol. From 6pm Friday 8th Feb - 6pm Sunday 10th Feb 2013 at the College Project, Bristol, BS3 5JJ - ArtSpaceLifeSpace
