Artworks at the 2014 Byron Bay Writer's Festival

Woman, or alien?
Here are some pictures of the artwork scattered around the festival grounds this year.

This piece of art above was my favorite though, called ATM  
(Always Taking Machine?).
People were actually paying $2 per transaction to view this artwork and it seemed a rather popular piece with the festival goers too, for some reason?-)

Paying $2 to use, sorry view, an ATM, whatever next! I viewed one today for free.

Good to see the photos - not just books then.

I don't know how it is in the UK Mike,but in Australia you can use other banks ATMs to get money out...but usually for a fee of at lest $2 per transaction.

If you use your own banks ATMs you usually get about say 10 free transactions per month before the bank hits you with an "excess transaction fee".

For instance my bank hit me with $18 worth of "excess transaction" fees this guess what ? I'm no longer going to be banking with them.I have already gotten a new credit card and opened a savings account with another bank...but my next step is to transfer my mortgage over to my new bank,too.

Mostly free in the UK though there are a few that charge - but they have to warn people of the cost in advance of withdrawing - these are usually on motorways etc. In town they seem to be all free.

I think that my favourite piece is the bench. Only I bet they move it just before you sit down!

I actually put the naked lady playing the ukelele specifically in this post for you KU.
There will be a post coming up soon where Missy Higgins is playing the ukelele...but fully clothed I'm sorry to say.
Darren Hanlon did offer to take his clothes off though,but I pleaded with him to keep them on. ;-)

Ha ha - thank you. I didn't comment on that because I figure it was too obvious ;-) Though of course, I love naked women playing ukuleles!
