The best ideas are stolen ones...Sanctus1 did a shrine obscura last year at Gb. Obscura worship is soooo 2005!!!


i still claim we never saw it!!!!!!


I don't think it was DJ shadow but I can confirm it as my idea. As for theft - is ignorance innocence? Blame Mr Pinhole.
It's nice to think we are as obscure as Sanctus1 and equally inspired.

Given that worship is a righteous life what about your many tricks encourages repentant living? It seems every stunt you list simply emotionally manipulates folks in the extreme short term not unlike the modern and postmodern church experiance. of course folks think their little 'red bull' religious experiance allows them to check off religion on the daily or weekly calendar and get back to reality.

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship."

so i stare at some obscura thingy and thing write a note on the wall of a shed - great! I'm done! Now back to my selfish ways! kinda like that dog or pig thing in scripture!


thanks for the encouragement...

Actually ben it was 2 years ago we did it for sanctus1 not last year. At the time I wanted to try and do it as big as the grace one but they didn't have sheds then and it was going to be difficult to cmplete in 3 hours so we settled for the bird box size. We did do it first but Grace have done something bigger and better, in my humble opinion.
