The Flatpack Film festival has got such an amazing array of stuff going on this year that even those of us apparently locked into the humdrum logistics of feeding, watering, clothing and illuminating their youth can partake. Today Sarah, Eve and I found video screens in shop windows, we watched an hours worth of wonderful kids films at The Electric and a cluster of installed things at festival’s nerve centre on Floodgate Street.
For me the ‘must see’ art of the day was Rob MacLaughlan’s ‘Paint Can, Revolving’. Wonderfully simple, beautifully executed, hypnotic, otherworldly and quotidian simultaneously, just my kind of thing. There’s a bit of intriguing physics involved as well which is obviously and added draw for me.
