Before La Machine hit the streets of Liverpool with its spectacular event ‘La Princesse’ they built and tested the spider at Cammell Lairds in Birkenhead. I was lucky enough to be passing right at the moment when they were testing it. I had no idea this was going on. I was just insanely lucky. I didn’t tell anyone what I saw as I didn’t want to spoil it for them because this was an event you had to see for yourself. To be fair, I wasn’t really sure what I saw that day. It wasn’t clear until I saw the event take place.
