Sort of connected to my urban exploration stuff, here's some guerilla projecting we did for my mate's dad's sixtieth birthday.

Some of it was done in SE1 as you will see.

Full story here:

Very cool! A bit naughty but the message was inoffensive, so no harm done!

What sort of equipment did you have? What was your cost of buying/hiring it?

Great stuff! Well done. :)

Nice work, fellah!

Great work, but naughty indeed. I don't think I'd like to see this regularly.

ive been doing stuff around and about like this for years, on an underground tip. on an overground level, have been doing club and band visuals for years too.

im a bit more political with the content in gorilla gigs tho. if your going to subvert public spaces atleast make it count.

And that is exactly what I meant: I don't think I would want to see that happening.

And (if it's possible to say this without sounding like a hypocrit) I'd agree. If nothing else it would stop being 'fun' if it happened alot.

I doubt we'll do this particular stunt again. There's other naughty-but-legal things to be doing and hey, who wants to be one-trick pony? :)

By one of those strange bit of morphic resonance (or whatever), last night I was walking over Hungerford Bridge and saw Shell's projection onto the Shell Tower to congratulate the winners of their "fuel economy challenge" for getting into the Guinnesss Book of Records.

And the thought came into my mind that I should sabotage the projection with my own message on the lines of:

"Lang Rabbie and his Committee of Taste
Demolish this Carbuncle now!"

followed in swift succession by projections onto Sea Containers House, Rose Court, and No 1 London Bridge.

Christ yes. Sea Containers and No.1 LB are bloody terrible. Truly awful bits of architecture. I love "good" redev but they are rubbish.

Fancy yet another urban75 "regeneration/gentrification" thread? No, me neither ;)
