Christmas installation

For BTJ's Great Final Action of 2009, Frances Belser contributes one of her striking truisms:


Patrick Graf paints each single letter on a white rice bags (100x40cm, see below). These bags are filled up with helium and placed in a row. The sentence hovers in the air and people can read it from a distance. 

Now its your turn! Tell us your thoughts: where to place the installation in Zurich? How can we develop the action? Should we play music while performing etc.? Please comment or e-mail.

Many thanks to Hastings Audio Network, Zurich, which supports this action.


We are very thankful for all the communities' help! The action will take place on December 22 @Bally, Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich, 5 p.m.

Jasmin O'Meara (ZOOT WOMAN) became a Creative Contributior

ZOOT WOMAN is a British alternative pop group from Reading, England, featuring Johnny Blake, Adam Blake, Stuart Price and Jasmin O’Meara.

Last month, the Captain met the band backstage after their concert in Zurich, which was organised by Supkultur. Jasmin O’Meara immediately became a fan of BTJ and asked for a pin. Like everybody, she was told to make a contribution. There are no free pins.

Look, what we got! Our Jumbo will look very, very pritty thanks to Jasmin's contribution!

We will hand out the pin personally when we are in London, during our European trip

architect wanted!

To build the Jumbo's original size tail fin we need support by professionals. We will build it by our own as far as possible, promise. But, we don't want the tail fin horizontal, you know! And Bury just refuses to guarantee.

We are looking for an architect, who can help us with the construction of the framework. Are you Bury II.? Send us e-mail!

We contacted Martin, a Prof at ETH, Zurich working with architects. He kindly forewarded our request to his fellows. See e-mail.
