This was fun. Last Friday we were in Ropewalks square in front of FACT firing sms messages onto the wall using a digital slingshot. People in Berlin were doing the same, so it was an unusual way of communicating.

At the same time the new screen on the front of FACT was switched on, this will launch properly on 3 September at dusk with more Media Facade events to follow.
