A Czech judge dismissed charges on Tuesday against seven artists accused of scaremongering by Czech Television after they hacked into a live broadcast in June and superimposed images of a nuclear explosion on a picture of mountains being used as the backdrop for a weather forecast, Agence France-Presse reported. At the end of a six-hour hearing in the Trutnov regional court, the judge, Stanislava Suchankova, said: ‘The images of the explosion could not have created public unrest. People were rather amused at how easy it was to disrupt the signal.’ Cheers and applause welcomed the decision, but the state prosecutor, Zdena Hourova, said the state would consider an appeal. The artists of the Ztohoven collective had faced a maximum sentence of three years in jail. The stunt, which was posted on the Internet, attracted international notice and won them a national prize for young artists.

a visit to northampton

15 March 2008

on tuesday i go to northampton to meet with the organisers and have a good look around the greyfiars bus station, which is the location for OSOP.
i’ll post some pictures when i get back. i think it’s an amazing building - those who live within sight of it seem to think otherwise.

i’ve been selected to exhibit in OSOP this june. i will be devising a new piece of work for the greyfriers bus station in northampton.
the bus station is a great venue; a large building that, due to it’s distinctive 70s architecture, either causes love or hate. see this bbc article for more info and some pictures.
