Six week Visual Art - L

In 2005 I went to Liverpool to visit the (FACT) Museum. It's a place dedicated to art in video form. Whether it's a little clip or a motion picture it's covered in this amazing place...oh and there's a bar too :) The visual art was the most exciting part. Walking into a gallery with just white walls "TURN ON THE PROJECTORS!!!!!" shouted the pretty scouse blonde girl who was giving the tour - and suddenly the room transformed into a multi-screen cinema. One of the art pieces was a fat lady sat on a bench, in the same place for six weeks in a row...wearing the same clothes and eating the same food.

I consider myself a bit of a visual artist - so i have decided to do something similar. every week during my break from work, i sit in the same place outside and have a fag, i usually have a drink of some sort aswell - i'm planning on taking a foto of myself once a week until xmas. The only thing that will change are my coats - it's getting pretty chilly out there now.

Here's the first two...
