anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

LED Throwies

I hung out with Evan Roth and James Powderly of Graffiti Research Lab last night. Evan took something out of his pocket - it was an led throwie and gave it to me. I thought it was pretty and put it in my handbag. I am now thinking of places i can throw it -
each throwie is made up of a 10mm LED and a button-size lithium battery and is taped together with a rare earth magnet for superior stickage - all I need now is a magnetic surface and I'm ready for some LED throwing.

Evan and James are over in Dublin from Brooklyn for Lightwave at Dublin's new Science Gallery. Evan is discussing the work they do as Graffiti Research Lab tonight in Trinity and debating the question: How can light can be used as a vehicle for self-expression in public spaces?

The G.R.L. will also be laser-bombing targets of interest around Dublin this weekend - I think the Central Bank maybe a hit.

'The L.A.S.E.R. Tag unit will allow any graffiti writer or ordinary citizen of Dublin to communicate on the same scale as advertisers, corporations and governments using a 60 milliwatt laser, 1800 watts of audio and a very big projector.'

I'm bringing my video camera. Saturday night is pretty horrific in Dublin, I wonder what the binge drinkers will make of all of this.
