Blue: before and after
The other night I was walking across Waterloo Bridge in London and saw the National Theatre’s coloured lights. It reminded me of the installation/projection I did there in 2000, when I projected Derek Jarman’s film “Blue” onto the National Theatre and set up a radio broadcast blanketing South Bank with the audio for anyone to listen to [left image courtesy of Clifton Steinberg]. It is without question the project I am most proud of (for the record, it was a commission to create a public space for reflection and remembrance for World AIDS Day). Seven years later, however, it seems the advertising potential of the space trumps its creative potential [right image].
