To mark the 20th anniversary of the film Trainspotting, Richard DeDomenici will stage a mass participation recreation of the Princes Street opening chase shots from the 1996 film.
You are all invited to take part. It will probably happen on Wednesday the 17th August at 3pm in Princes Street, but it might rain, so check this website or visit www.twitter.com/thereduxproject to confirm the details.
He will present the results a few days layer at Forest Fringe in a little talk about all the Reduxes he’s done with Forest Fringe since 2013.
Richard DeDomenici makes work that’s social, joyful, topical and political – although rarely simultaneously.
He specialises in urban-absurdist interventions which strive to create the kind of uncertainty that leads to possibility.
Richard is the inventor of the Carry-Ok wearable karaoke system, office chair sport The Swivelympics, the crocheted crypto-currency Knitcoin, and the radical feminist Eurovision tributeFux Bizz.
He recently released a fundraising record called Live Art Aid, and led a horse-drawn funeral cortege through the streets of London to commemorate the Death of Social Housing.
Last year DeDomenici adapted his inexplicably popular Redux Project for television as part of the BBC4 event Live From Television Centre.
It was described by journalist Matt Trueman as one of the smartest, strangest, subversive half hours of television they had ever seen.
