Brac{et Opening.

The Brac{et Collective had its first official opening last night of our first show under the title of ‘480’. The show was a great success and I will post some photos over the next couple of days.

Installation of my piece was an absolute nightmare! The ceiling mount I had built went together well, thanks largely in part to the help of Brac{et members. However once in the box, the connection between the DVD player and the projector was not working and sadly to check this we had to keep installing and then removing the whole installation every time. Nightmare!

We finally figured out that the loose connection between the power box and the plug socket that attaches to it, was causing the problem. After all of that we managed to get it up and running 20 minutes before the opening. Job done.

No…

The projector was too hot in the casing and would only run for 10-12 minutes before the bulb would get too hot! It was ok because it meant that I could just remove the plugs as the bulb was off, then turn it back on 10 minutes later.

Nightmare start, nightmare equipment, Great Night!

Thankyou to everyone who came.
