As part of the 2016 Edinburgh Art Festival MV Fingal in Leith Docks has been ‘dazzled’.
The Dazzle Ship by Ciara Phillips is on display at Leith Docks from 25 May as part of Edinburgh Art Festival’s Commissions programme.
Unfortunately, you can only see the boat from the opposite side of the water as the other side is within the restricted dock area. From the start of June, there will be curatorial content down beside the Vine Trust Barge and a photo of the ‘non visible’ side.
The Dazzle Ship will also be taking part at the Jutland commemorations in South Queensferry on Saturday 28th May.
We charted its progress and this is how it looked just after the start of the project.
