Electric Red

I photographed my fish, Electric Red, swimming around in tech, because that's what he likes to do. He swished up to the multimedia mass of Blessed and relaxed with the plugged-in iMass (even though there was no bread to nibble, doh!). Despite the lack of volts, Red quite enjoyed Richard Trouncer's storytelling in Abide, one night of which was about Jesus telling the fishermen how to do their job, instructing them to throw their nets on the other side of the boat to catch a massive haul (this was quite the horror story for him, but he likes those so it was ok).

Electric Red was most involved in the AV-wonder-fest that was the Sub gothic communion, Transcending Realms Divine, which used not one, but two projections, one with rolling images and liturgy, the other with full motion video. The soundtrack was very loud in places and made him blow bubbles in delight. The performers were wearing gas masks and some of the imagery was watery, which made him feel like he was being joined by (very odd looking) deep sea divers.

Red very much regretted missing out on an ear-massage from Fat Roland's DJ sets in the Jesus Arms. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time relaxing with friends and being plugged into the mains in the contributors venue, as photographed (although he doesn't look it, he's actually a distant cousin to some electric eels, so all these mixed electricity and water references are ok).
