Found in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham - an alternate plane of reality that only aligns with ours from one particular coordinate.

Steve says:

if we are getting picky, I believe the person who did this stuck it in the wrong place, the shot is fine and really special.

Way cool..

eversion says:

I think we should go easy on being picky about the exact alignment. First of all, it's on an existing sign rather than a tailor made one and secondly, the results of the photo are also dependent on my choice of lens and the fact that I spent all of 2 seconds taking the picture.

Dhamaka says:

shame they don't show more on the site..

13th Dec 2005, 08:32

eversion says:

Not sure if it was part of it - just guessing...

13th Dec 2005, 10:05

i know i think its fantastic i was just saying that the trailing edge near the bottom is everso slightly off

13th Dec 2005, 10:08

Dhamaka says:

a good guess, but without more photos (ie on the site) I guess we'll never know for sure

Have you identified the artist/project yet? If not, you'll have some luck if you go back to the Architecture Week programme and look for a 'Capital Art Projects', 'the Distance Between Us' or a couple of dudes who calle themselves Sans façon. You might also look up Simon Pope, Karin Kihlberg & Reuben Henry. Then sign up for next year's actrivities...

OK, so this is kind of embarrassing. Completely missed this first time round, despite having written an entry on my blog highlighting some events during Architecture Week.

Thanks for the info e-tat. I've Googled the names and found out all about it...

e-tat says:

Yo, everyone does it, and I know you'll return the favour manifold.

Meanwhile it's a good time to plug this new project from Allie & co:

Internationally acclaimed artist Simon Pope seeks volunteers from the West Midlands to save their most cherished piece of popular culture, with an aim to ‘become’ their chosen item. From January 2006 a series of open workshops will take place in Birmingham and online-communities will be developed to assist volunteers as they work towards the final event in Birmingham’s city centre in Spring 2006. ... ...

glad you like the work - it's by artists Sans facon, based in Glasgow. Alli and I (Capital Art Projects) commissioned them to make new work in response to the regeneration programmes of Birmingham. You can see more on our website - www(dot)capitalartprojects(dot)org(dot)uk and also on Sans facon's site - www(dot)sansfacon(dot)co(dot)uk
As last comment 14 December Capital Arts is coordinating a new project by Simon Pope - this time commissioned by BBC and Arts Council - we are looking for participants - check it out at www(dot)charade(dot)org(dot)uk
