Toughened glass is good stuff
This is a projection screen for an 'art' video and was made by Dan - AKA, Stanley Donwood - the man who does Radiohead's album covers.
A couple of years ago he made the same image in black and white and the screen miraculously stayed up intact for ages until some crappy graffiti artist who is supposed to be famous painted it out with some meaningless and ugly imagery. I never got round to seeing the projection.
Talking of vandalism, my workshop has been smashed up sometime over the few days when I haven't been there. They broke a load of roof tiles and smashed a skylight. I really don't understand the joy of wanton destruction. Part of the problem is that it looked uncared for, because I let the nettles grow waist high, so I have strimmed the whole area now - too late.
I am so please I installed toughened glass in the main windows, because people have tried to smash them many times in the 17 years they have been there, and each time the rocks have just bounced off.
It gives me pleasure to imagine their frustration, but it is not a great deal of pleasure.
As you can tell from the quality of this post, I am somewhat bored and despondent today.
