WFT Persil?

Percil adfitti?

I took this photo back at the beginning of September on the Naas Road. I had seen these strange clothing printed onto walls hanging out to dry, albeit without the Persil ‘tag’, on a number of occasions, in a number of locations around the city. Being an admirer of street art, grafitti and the like, I was curious about the wet clothes plastered to the walls. It was a letdown to discover this was an ad campaign by Unilever when I spotted this ‘piece’ on the Naas Road, near enough to the Bluebell Luas stop. I made myself a note to go back and take a photo and this is it.
So, Lever Bros are getting down with the street vibes now then I see! I wonder though is this not ‘posting bills’ or advertising without permission? Contrast this with the sight further on up the road with the Anti Graffiti Van Man erasing some much better tags off a far less obvious wall.


Electric Picnic in pics

Well, I was going to do a full review of this year’s Electric Picnic festival, but I’m backdating this now so it’s best to let the pictures tell the story for the most part. Briefly though, yes it was good. I was sober all weekend on doctor’s orders and quite proud of myself for that. Missed Friday night but got down on Saturday and provided live visuals for the excellent Halfset in the Body & Soul area and played a DJ set on Sunday on the Cosmololis visuals tower. Highlights included Dj Yoda, The Silent Disco, Le Bien, The rap kid in the Lost Vagueness Chapel, The whole of Body & Soul, The Hog sandwiches and Lucent Dossier’s Vaudeville Cirque.

There are two photo sets here, one of the Electric Picnic in general and one for the Vaudeville Cirque as it deserves one of its own on account of it being so good!

Liisa Lounila Exhibition

Liisa Lounila  - Play

Finnish artist Liisa Lounila currently has an exhibition of her work at the Gallery Of Photography in Meeting House Square in Dublin. Her work was introduced to me a few months back by my friend Leo and I was very impressed. She makes time sliced photographs into a 3D experience similar to the techniques used in the film The Matrix. “Popcorn” was my first introduction and it is a scene of some people throwing popcorn at each other. This is shown here as well as “Gig” and my favourite piece “Play”, which is a number of scenes at a nightclub tied together in this style of frozen life. Also on display are some photos in lightboxes which move when you move and hurt your eyes a bit and some LCD belt-buckles which could well be the rage come 2010!!
Go check it out, it runs from August 15 – September 19. For more info, check out Scene Missing, the portfolio site of the artist where you can view the work, but as always it’s best to see it in the gallery!
