Given that walls down at Leake Street last for just about long enough to grab a photo before someone throws up another piece or they’re relentlessly tagged we thought we’d make the most of the ceiling space we had to do a little tagger baiting. If you’re good enough and can get up to the ceiling to throw your tag up then you’re in, it’s as simple as that! We don’t mess about. This is ironclad!
As a side note I’m not entirely sure why we thought it would be at all easy to put lettering on a curved ceiling. But at least we managed to get there in the end. It’s pretty tricky to get a decent photo though…

Ceiling cat is watching you ruminate
While we were at Seven recently I spotted a little hatch in the ceiling of the room next to where we were working and just knew what had to go up there (if they’d allow us). Ceiling cats! After a brief negotiation with the cat loving owners we were in. As the cats would be pretty difficult to spot (as they are life-size and on the ceiling) our joke would be lost on most so we thought we’d add some gravity defying paw prints to bring make them easier to spot. I, for one, welcome our new cat overlords.
Just in case you aren’t allowed on the internet very often ceiling cat is an internet meme that was wildly popular a few years ago and consisted of a picture of a cat peering through a hole in the ceiling with the legend ‘ceiling cat is watching you masturbate’. This then spawned numerous images using the same image of the cat and different words in the format “Ceiling Cat is watching you [verb ending in/rhyming with -ate]”. Internet history lesson over.
