We had a fantastic time with the camera at the Moseley Folk Festival. While our other outings this summer have made us feel we might be onto something good here, the Folk Fest confirmed it. There’s no going back now.
Our original plan was to move around the site and point at different things, but MoFo (as it’s known) gets rather full of blankets and chairs rather quickly, so after a trial down by the stage on Saturday morning we moved to a hillock overlooking the back of the field, right by the beer tent and on the way to the toilets. In other words a perfect place to meet people.
We can’t say how many people looked through the camera that weekend. It was easily in the hundreds. And all of them loved it.
We’ll definitely be back next year, if Carl and Gerv will have us. We’ve even been thinking of a site-specific installation to complement the music – maybe a simple cloud chamber in the style of Chris Drury’s work?
Here’s some of our photos (as with all the busy days we were often too busy to take pics!) and don’t forget to check the videos.
