The Abandon Normal Devices Festival finally launched today and I was tickled on the Big Screen – which was nice.

Earlier we saw the Carolee Schneemann ‘Precarious‘ exhibition at Tate Liverpool which is a video installation – good job the weather was fine for the walk anyway.

Hand from Above is a new commission for the Big Screen that aims to interrupt our normal routine as we rush by. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, designer Chris O’Shea has created a giant hand that will plunge into view and pick up, tickle and even squash shoppers and pedestrians as they pass by.

I didn’t see it pick anyone up, it was mostly tickling and it squashed a few. Good fun and the public were really enjoying it.
Wed 23rd – Sun 27th September 2009, daily at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm for one hour each time.
