Out a sock on it, P? As in, "you're an lgbt sock and you should come right out and say so"...? :wink:

Looking forward to seeing this. We've just taken up running (in fact I may have been spotted, wheezing along the prom, as I decided to "out" my pol t-shirt at last! But only once...) and anything to distract our attention from the pain is a good thing. Noticed that the noticeboard at the end of the prom at Joppa is a bit outdated, though - I assume the moon picnic refers to August last year. Not to mention POD 2004. If anyone felt like changing the notices it would take my mind off my pounding pulse and aching legs...

The installation will actually be on display until the end of October and actually cost £13k (according to the EN), not 20k.

I am hoping you will take some stunning photos of it when it is up.

I'm with Wangi on this one (see, I do agree with you sometimes :wink: ). 13K?????? And all those starving Africans? Ridiculous.

I'm personally not against the spending of money on art projects, and argued that case on the thread last year. However that is a substantial amount of money for a temporary work and I would have thought a permanent work would have been a "better" use of funds.

I got the £20k figure from the 2005 brief which was circulated in Feb - "In the second stage each group will receive £300 to enable them to prepare a suitably detailed submission ... The total artists fee available is £15k. The materials budget is a maximum of £4k". I would have got something more recent from the committee minutes but they've not been updated since April ;)

But yes, I am looking forward to seeing it and taking some shots!

Like Wangi, I'm not against spending money on 'art' as such but I do object to so much money being spent on something temporary. Portobello could do with some good, modern permanent sculptures.

The article says there are eight pigeons... not for a fair while! At the most there are , I think... But they would make a nice feature on the coffee table! ;)

Of course there are the similar sculptures up at Fort K too...

Dakota - are those dayglo balls part the "installation"? Some of us thought they were to do with jetskis :?

Anyway, two of the windsocks are up tonight. Certainly living up to their name in this weather!! I'm looking forward to seeing the cormorants drying their wings (or sunning themselves or whatever it is they are doing) on top of them!

Poopy - Was Dakota not referring to last year's bargain work of art?

Saw the windsocks tonight and very colourful they are too, but not what I would call "art" I'm afraid.

If it looks like a windsock, and works like a windsock, and is in all ways generally indistinguishable from a windsock, it's a windsock. Not a sculpture.

Sorry guys, I want to love it, but I can't.

I didn't, that's what it looked like - It was 8pm last night and it was pretty wild, all the spray from the sea was making everything naturally grey. a B&W too.

I wanted to get a shot like Dakota's, up close... But there was no chance of that last night :)
