hard day at the office

man, this has been a tough one today. so many little details that still not right with the show. i doubt the public notice as the show is fully functioning and look insane as you can see from the photos.

but i see little details, some of which can't be fixed, like the lighting which turns out to be impossible to fix because of very limited power and access in the space.

everyone was on my case today, venue sponsor freaking out, government stressed, curator barking....dude, i wish i could just make the art and not worry about all the bullshit but that's just not possible here. to make this i've had to be project manager, labourer, designer, PR manager, tea lady, you name it. i was 30 ft up on a ladder painting white bits black for hours the other day. well, i shouldn't complain, nobody forced me to build the show.

anyway, we'll see what we can throw together in the next 24 hours to improve things. except we can't afford anything so I'm trying to do it all myself lo fi.

also the horse 3D is not as amazing as i hoped so i'm ripping the whole lot out tomorrow and replacing it over night with a big new system. lucky i can do a barter deal with the tech company so it won't cost.

anyway, a few bits of fine tuning but by the time the party rolls on thursday, it should be perfect. then maybe by the weekend i can finally sleep for more than 5 hours....
