Tagtool at Illuminating York Festival

iink ( Matthias Fritz) came over from Austria to create four nights of projections at the Illuminating York festival which provided the National Trust's Treasurers House as a backdrop for projecting on. I went over for the Friday evening, many thousands came to view the work that evening.

It was great to meet the festival team members who knew about the Nine Trades project from the Tagtool blog. Alistair and I should have met Portia Simpson ( festivals officer) earlier this year at the Tagtool International Gathering but the Icelandic volcano eruptions prevented her from making it so it was good to finally meet her.

It was the first time I'd been able to use the Tagtool to draw on such a huge scale outdoors. Simple drawings were very effective. I got to mess about with the pen and gamepad for about half an hour. I really enjoyed it.

19 November sees the Winter Light Festival in Dundee, it would be wonderful if one of the Dundee Tagtools could play a part in that.
