Last day, home town. We had a few friends come along (thanks for your help!). A relaxed day. And an awesome after party. Now we can sleep.

A lovely windy night at the Duxton. After running out of generator fuel, we hijacked some local Concert Hall power (thanks!) and lit up the top two thirds of the Duxton’s west wall. It was good to be back in Perth.

Australia Day! Wasn’t much dark indoors areas during the day so we drove around back stage and got some of the artists to tag the buggy.

We hit the side of the Marriot Hotel. They weren’t very impressed.

Projector Bombing Circular Quay

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

So the plan was to get the golf buggy trucked to Circular Quay and begin the night projecting onto the Museum of Contemporary Art then move around and try getting some light on to the Opera House. We didn’t hold the highest hope for the Opera House because.. well.. you know.. it’s a massive Sydney icon and someone’s sure to be annoyed about it.

MCA security were being jerks and basically aggressively said from the get-go that projecting onto their building was definitely not allowed. They weren’t really that impressed when we turned the projector 12degrees to the right and drew all over a tree out the front. The local rangers came down after hearing something on their police scanners and asked a few questions but didn’t really mind. We got a few of them to do some drawings and they loved it… People started to gather and we ended up moving a little closer to the wharf to hit a cruise ship moored in the quay. By this time lots of kids and old people were getting into it.

Jerrem drove the buggy around the quay towards the Opera House where security immediately pulled us up. We parked millimetres outside their jurisdiction and hit a big rock wall but after 20 minutes or so we were shut down. We drove back to the truck for pickup and headed home.

It was really fun to see kids using the tools, they are definitely having the most enjoyment out there. It was definitely a different crowd to the BDO youth. Good times.
