ME: BROKEFIX live blog on the Maine Labor Department mural, and guerilla projection
[UPDATE Live blog is here. --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):
