I find private views completely anticlimactic – all the effort and frantic frustration, panic and tension boiling down to a glass of cheap red and a hint of ‘where did all the effort go?’. there’s also the tiny niggles and worries and little things that go wrong that make you think ‘ah well…’. Still – the exhibition looks fantastic, and the mutantscope ran pretty much without issue, although i did discover today that i’ll need to re-load the film onto the laptop every day the exhibition runs.. still, at least it works, it’s all good and my friends seemed to enjoy it. so, pictures from the evening;
