Took a while, but thanks to their press office I got to take some photos of a bus station’s cctv system for my project. I think anyone who’s been on a bus in Manchester might welcome cameras to record the commotion (and probably tazers to deal with people playing music through the speaker of their mobile phone) so I was glad to get something to balance the ‘big brother’ photos which some of the series looks at.
Spent the evening at a talk by Benedict Campbell – you’ll have seen his very slick CGI/advertising work – not my cup of PG – but impressive stuff. Oh and there was just time to go to Urbis and see Reality Hack by Andrew Brooks which features big photos of hidden parts of urban Manchester, nice idea, nicely done IMHO.
