Thanks so much to everyone for your ongoing support for Earthly Messenger and thanks to the thousands of people who have visited Aylesbury since the unveiling on 25 March.

The live stream from the webcam can now be seen at www.earthlymessenger.net 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The webcam feed doesn’t carry audio but look out for people dancing in front of the sculpture at about one minute past the hour every day from 9.00am to 9.00pm (UK time) when we play a Bowie track at random from an audio system above the statue. We hope to improve the definition of the video stream later in the year when high speed fibre broadband finally arrives in central Aylesbury. In the meantime the feed is in HD colour in daylight conditions and black and white at night. (UK time). You’ll see the statue beautifully framed by the eighteenth century arch of Old County Hall in Aylesbury’s Market Square.  

One thing we’ve noticed is how much kids love the statue. One of the things they seem to go for is to touch the rings on David’s wrist to see if they move. We very much want people to touch the statue. 

We still need funding so please go back to the previous Kickstarter Update (No 36) to see what’s on offer. 

We will soon be making available video and audio of Andrew Sinclair talking about how the sculpture was designed and made. You'll be able to find this on the same Earthly Messenger website with a QR code web-link. 

If you haven’t visited Aylesbury to see Earthly Messenger yet please do. The best time to see this stunning sculpture is after dark when it shines like a star. Tell all your friends when you’ll be visiting and they’ll be able to see you on the webcam feed.
