What's that hooting and groaning, as though distant Scottish pipers were sneaking up on you? It's a large tartan... a kind of kilted...a sort of person made of different clans, all scrambled up with screeching and skirling sounds, gliding up behind you with dark intention....

Carapace Burlesque is a 2 metre tall sculpture made from recycled kilts. It is remotely controlled by Stephanie Douet, and has a nasty bagpipe soundtrack by Tudor Lukies choking and gurgling under its crinoline. Mark Wrighton makes the radio-controlled part.

Live Tartan stalks the audience at last night's Random Friday event at DLW.

Music and art lovers alike were dismayed and alarmed as Stephanie Douet struggled to control her pseudo-quasi-Scottish robot as it lurched around the foyer, pursuing small children and uttering its hideous screeching bagpipe song.
