East by Kate

This odd painting on a wall in South Fort Street teases the mind: is it graffiti? art? a notice? Was it painted to look as if the newer building had cut it in half, or is it older than the building next to it – and if so, what’s on the half that was built over?

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: East by Kate.

Royal Mile School: Cow Visitor

This is one of the Cow Parade that decorated Edinburgh for three months in 2006: for that short period of time, statues of females outnumbered statues of males. That’s all I can tell you: the Royal Mile Primary School website has no information about their cow in the playground, and the Cow Parade website has no information available about who purchased which cows. The name of the cow and the artist ought to be on the base of the statue, but the playground is not open (quite reasonably) to curious adults who just want to look at a cow’s bottom.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble:Visitor Not Reporting to School Office.

Bag tied to a tree in Balfour Street. Art? Accident? Rubbish? Who can say?

ColloquiArt: This Is Not A Work Of Art

Filed under: art, people, photos, windows — Tags: , , , , , — EdinburghEye @ 4:24 pm

This photo was taken at The GRV, hosting ColloquiArt. It’s still open – today and tomorrow! – if you want to go see it for yourself: a fascinating small exhibit. This photo is available on Redbubble: This Is Not A Work Of Art.

From left to right, in this photo, you can see: “Shelter” – an umbrella covered in newspaper; a person being a work of performance art; a sculpture which is a design for a tea room; people discussing and filling in the “People Forms” – of which, more later – and one of the wall works of art beneath which two more people filling in the “People Forms” sit.
