Hey guys

I thought you might like this – I took my Rex into an abandoned factory and got some pretty cool footage – kinda like what would happen if Mad Max got an RC heli.

One vid is shot inside – I’m being very careful because it’s all a bit confined. But I think it’s worth it for the burnt-out car and general backdrop of decay. Nice art too.

The next is from about twelve feet up and out a hole in the wall over a yard full of various industrial refuse. I love the perspective and it’s a lot more comfortable to fly from a higher vantage point. And don't worry - it's an industrial area and, given the time of year, the entire suburb was pretty much deserted.

The factory itself is a sprawling three-acre affair that’s been abandoned for at least the past four years – if you’re into legitimate street art it’s one of the finest and most extensive galleries in the southern hemisphere and it’ll be a pity when they knock it down (if they ever do). I wasn’t worried about LEOs and nor should you be – this place is quite a popular destination for art lovers and hosts many raves and various whatnots. We passed a few groups browsing around and taking photos on the day. Nobody seems to care and it was definitely a new experience flying my heli in this unusual and, to me, very interesting backdrop.

I hope you like it! : )

lol...That is cool.
I was wondering if you could get that noisy heli out of the way of the artwork

Seriously though.
Cool stuff.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Not Bad !!! your canopy blended in with the artwork, you probably have to focus a little harder not to lose your orientation.

Someone should come in and clean up all the debris and trash.

@Mike0251... http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=fac...=69038000%40N00

Enjoy. My friend and I took these shots about a year ago... around when I thought a heli would be a good idea! There's some real gems hidden in there so have fun browsing through!

And DougsRC, I was so concerned about possibly losing control I was all over that heli like a hawk... You can hear him ask a question at the start and I just ignore him, lol! I didn't notice it blending in. There was also quite a few flight-unfriendly cables and broken pipes hanging down so I was trying to glance around at the surroundings alot. Heaps of fun though!

There was a lot more footage in various parts but it was shot on my phone and didn't turn out. Gonna go back tomorrow and try and get enough to edit something together.

It's too bad that the people that put that "art" up don't take the time to do it professionally in a gallery instead of illegally.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

@ Choppercrazy... it's a valid argument, but there are many different levels to graff art, from the tags you see scrawled everywhere, to pieces eventually covered in Perspex by London City Council so as to preserve them for future generations.

I think a gallery such as this is a good case in point - the art is so impressive because it ISN'T public. The artists have no interest in impressing random passersby or destroying property for the sake of it. In a setting such as this they can take their time without being moved on by the constabulary, and the pieces themselves last more than a week before being buffed off and painted the regulation anti-graff poo brown.

One argument I'll offer in graff's defence is that I find billboard advertising to be exceedingly ugly, coating every available surface with repetitive, obnoxious messages I couldn't care less about. I find it tiresome, and butt-ugly - this is around the exact-same reaction someone who doesn't understand street art has. So why is one illegal and the other not? I bet we can all guess which one has more money involved.

I agree, some street art blows me away. It can be very creative and unusual, better than Picaso or some of the other outlandish overpriced art.

I always laughed when I'd hear older people muttering how the youth of today have no concept of fine art. One of my other obsessions is calligraphy (old-school legible stuff) and a great many of the pieces you see that seem random scrawl are in fact highly abstract, wildly creative calligraphy. It doesn't find access to galleries because galleries tend to concern themselves with avant-garde and fine art, and also tend to be run by insufferable wankers.

But in the end, have a look at how many mainstream advertisers use graff iconography (spraycan streaks and splats, stencils, b-boy lettering) to reach youth markets. It's by-and-large the go-to look and feel to get that done, so as it becomes more mainstream the vandalism aspect will lessen in significance.
