Circus of the Mind invited to Festival 23

Those lovely Discordians have invited Bob Prophette and his Circus of the Mind to be amongst the attractions at Festival 23.


Bob Prophette, the world’s foremost (and only) Metaphysical Bookmaker will be bringing his Circus of the Mind to delight the crowds at Festival 23. Circus of the Mind is a three ringed circus of feasts for your intellect and imagination featuring games and performances associated with Metaphysical Betting (anything unprovable but “true,” Bob is the bookmaker for you); the Court of Moral Ambiguity (let Bob challenge your rationalisations of morally ambiguous acts and find out just how morally ambiguous you really are); and the Confessional for Modern (Cognitive) Sins (confess you sins of memory, decision making and bias to Bob and receive the absolution you deserve). So look out for Bob the Bookie, Bob the Judge and Bob the Priest and discover something new about yourself and others.  You may even get a chance to punish Bob for his sins.  Now where is that whip?

Wallets of Wisdom a huge success at How The Light Gets In Festival 2016

Although not invited and not exactly made welcome Wallets of Wisdom appeared at the How the Light Gets in Festival in Hay on Wye this year and also the Hay Festival itself.



100 Wallets stuffed full of wisdom and wise-ass-ness were lost over the 10 day festival. Many of the Wallets were retrieved and the Philosophers and Music lover's additions were noted.  They included:



- a sanitary pad
- a shoe lace
- used train tickets
- Norwegian tram tickets
- over £2.00 in change (thanks)

No actual wisdom has so far been detected, but hopes remain high.

Until next time.

Homeless City Ads Selected for Art Habens Review of Contemporary Art 2015

Following the recent success in being selected and exhibited as part of the Big Noise Festival Photography Competition, the Homeless CityAds project has been selected through an open international call to be included in Art Habens Review of Contemporary Art 2015.
According to Art Habens “this year’s edition will focus on a recurrent paradox in contemporary art: the vague and ambiguous but thoroughly entrenched boundaries between the different practices of new media”. They continue “In particular it will engage with artists dealing with process-driven changes in our society, who pair their observations with new media technologies to produce their art projects.”

About RT Habens: ART Habens aims to engage artists, curators and gallerists in conversation about the role of Art in contemporary society. Inspired by the worldwide art scene, we highlight that art is an essential element in our lives: ART Habens reserves a special place to explore these transformations; first, by acknowledging the energy and effort that goes into the creation of art, and second, by investigating the new life a work takes on as it is transferred from artist to world.
