One thing that did impress me when I was in Birmingham was the Name In Lights project.
Walking home after the pub I look up and see the words "UNA WHITE" on top of the library building writtewn in illuminated letters. Spectacular.
I made a mental note to have a look at it online when I got home and much to my surprise I remembered.
The council website for the project is here. And the webpage spectacularly manages to devalue the project by putting a bland, uninspiring daytime photo online. How stupid and dull of the council.
A much better image is this one, pinched from the fierce festival website, who organised the whole thing.
