Projections have come a long way since Cunning Stunts pulled off one of the defining moments of lad culture in the UK - the beaming of Gail Porter's naked bottom onto the Houses of Parliament - way back in 1999. Since then for a long time it has been pretty old-hat for a lot of people
The Wooster Collective have been looking recently at it and it seems to be taking off in the street art scene - temporary graffiti, with the option of movement. First a few days ago with the projections of artist Jean Christian Bourcart, and today with a look at urban-projection.com. This has sent me on a little research mission, which I report below...

"We’re working, patiently and
step-by-step, to lower the cost of spaceflight so that many people can
afford to go and so that we humans can better continue exploring the
solar system. Accomplishing this mission will take a long time, and
we’re working on it methodically. We believe in incremental improvement
and in keeping investments at a pace that's sustainable. Slow and steady
is the way to achieve results, and we do not kid ourselves into thinking
this will get easier as we go along. Smaller, more frequent steps drive
a faster rate of learning, help us maintain focus, and give each of us
an opportunity to see our latest work fly sooner."
"The CCC Sputnik RFID device will be used as a visitor tracking system at the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress.
The 23nd Chaos Communication Congress (23C3) is a four-day conference
on technology, society and utopia. As usual, 23C3 will take place at
Berliner Congress Center in the time from December 27th to December
This use case is intended to demonstrate the actual threats of tracking and data mining with the RFID technology."
