Lost Not Found:Abscission (continues) Edinburgh Art Festival 2010
There are now 12 pieces of Artwork hidden in Edinburgh. These photos may give you a clue as to the whereabouts of some Artwork, they are, of course taken in a great hurry with a pocket camera! The pieces shown here were all placed yesterday.

Placed during a thunderstorm!

Thursday 12th August
Some notes:
Busy placing Artwork in the rain....
A visit today to the modern Art Gallery and Boyle Family & Gilbert &
George proved to be the highlightsof the show.
Narowly escaped being collared as I cunningly placed an Artwork after
cockily assembling & signing 3 in the same room as a camera.
Then a walk along the water of Leith & Dean Village, drizzle & patchy
rain then a clap of thunder as I stood under a tree just about to
write about the mumified magpie on my iPod. Good idea ....
Fantastic charged & ionised atmosphere by the river as I strolled on
towards Stockbridge...
The Story Of The Mumified Magpie
A rag, a cloth a crumpled piece of paper?
Closer, a black spiked claw, nothing within, mummified.
A cautious, careful transport, wrapped & gently carried.
Safely out of sight, then swaddled, entombed with soft White cloth, a
jewel concealed within.
Awaiting several days, the limbo on the doorstep with cautious cat overstepping.

How To Name The Artwork?
On Tuesday morning this:

A wonderful piece of synchronicity this morning, I'd just had some
photos for the project printed and wasn't sure what the title should be
without being too obvious so decided, without looking, to put my hand
out to the bookshelf in our rented flat. Without thinking, quick as a
flash, 'First book, 3rd sentence, 10th word'. The result: Ludwig
Wittgenstein 'Philosophical Investigations' in German/English, the word,
'Gegenstand' that translates as Object, Thing. Perfect!!!!

Some images from the Crocodilopolis exhibition at TK@The Forest Gallery, Edinburgh including the full page Big Pic in The List.

Four out of the Seven hidden sculptures were discovered and reported with one travelling to London and one to Glasgow (re-found, reported and moved to another site in Glasgow). Given past experience more could still be reported....
