Bring Your Own Beamer at the Glue Factory, Glasgow
 Beams of light infused with colour warmed the cool temperature of the Glue Factory tank room. 40 artists projected their digital art works on the walls, ceiling, stairway and corners, creating an all encompassing animation. BYOB Glasgow was packed with people, art, technology and good times thanks to organizers Diane Edwards and Craig Jackson.
