ME: BROKEFIX live blog on the Maine Labor Department mural, and guerilla projection

[UPDATE Live blog is here. --lambert]

[Welcome, Naked Capitalism readers; read on for the story, and please return to the main Corrente page at 9:030PM EST, where the live blog will be taking place. --lambert]

BROKEFIX, the anonymous guerrilla projectionists, will do a live blog at Corrente, April 19 at 9:30PM EST, so please return then! The blog will be fashionably late (at least for the East Coast) so they can get back from Bangor and relax after a legislative hearing on the mural that same day. We'll be interested in that hearing, and also in the DIY tech! Here's the back story:

Republican Maine Governor Paul LePage has admitted regret over ordering his Department of Labor to remove a mural depicting the state’s labor history from its lobby. ....

Inadvertently, says the Post, the move also made the mural larger than life — literally. Late at night on April 2, a group of three artists calling themselves “BrokeFix” visited Maine’s capitol building in Augusta. Running a projector out of their car, they projected a large image of the mural onto the capitol’s edifice for roughly two hours. [#8]

Awesome. Son et lumière not just at Versailles, but in the great state of Maine (and soon, we hope, everywhere!) Here's the video (again):

MORE LIKE THIS, PLEASE!

UPDATE More background from the online WSJ.

If brokefix puts up their own post (I hope!) we'll go with that and I'll sticky it; otherwise, we can use this...

Sorry for the confusion, we had started our own post thinking that was how this was going be run.

In any event, greetings from BrokeFix.

Are we ready to begin?
