Buckets and the Birdcage Bandstand

There is an interesting piece of installation art on display at Fabrica at the moment. Cascade by Stephane Cauchy is a series of buckets suspended on pulleys over a tank of water. Pipes run down into the buckets and they fill at different rates. Now and then one bucket will become so fill of water that it will pivot on an axel and empty the water into the tank at which point the bucket becomes light and is pulled up by the other buckets which are filling up. OK, OK…. you probably have to see it.

Also good to see that a band was playing on the bird cage band stand and they’ve laid out deck chairs for people to sit an enjoy the music.

Renovated Bandstand falling apart already

The media is reporting that renovation work on the Birdcage bandstand on Brighton seafront has finally completed and the bandstand is now open. The BBC claimed that the renovation work cost around £ 1,000,000.

I checked it out on Saturday afternoon and looks pretty good but the new tiled floor is falling to bits already. The grouting is just falling out.
