Still thinking about #likeminds and how Exeter continues meanwhile. I have found a Flickr link for Phoenix Galleries. Not sure how I missed it for so long. there are photos from several recent shows. I had thought that policy was to not allow photography from the public or casual bloggers. Just repeating myself but gradually getting towards a three minute version, social media assumes some sort of free access to samples, mashup possibilities and soforth. Music is ok most of the time, visual art not so yet as far as I can tell. The Flickr photos are not Creative Commons but can be linked to. Presumably no permission for collage with something else.

There are several from Fieldworks by Juliet Robson. Also text on Facebook (keep scrolling down). I will try to raise this with the Wheely Saying Something radio show on Phonic. The work involved several ropes showing a line of sight, for example from a wheelchair. There could be more photos from around Exeter, maybe paint the ropes in later.

The current show may involve a stage set and invite performance inspired by the Gold Diggers of 1932, 1934, 1937 etc. Warner are not the most obvious people to encourage a mash up. But what else is possible?
