    If you haven't heard of it, it's Anthony Gormley's new art project http://www.oneandother.co.uk/

    " This summer, sculptor Antony Gormley invites you to help create an astonishing living monument. He is asking the people of the UK to occupy the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, a space normally reserved for statues of Kings and Generals. They will become an image of themselves, and a representation of the whole of humanity.

    Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break, a different person will make the Plinth their own. If you're selected, you can use your time on the plinth as you like. One & Other is open to anyone and everyone from any corner of the UK. As long as you're 16 or over and are living or staying in the UK, you can apply to be part of this unforgettable artistic experiment. "

    So far, everyone I've seen has been taking a stand for a particular political cause. Honestly, I'd rather just sit there and take in a view that not many people get, my slot's going to be 7am to 8am on a sunday at the end of August.

    What would -you- do if you were on the plinth?

    The first thing that came to my head, because I just posted it in another thread.

    I would dress up as a banana and do the peanut butter jelly dance :banana:

    It seems so appropriate

    Climb off, and complain to Mr Gormley, who has already treated most of the country with the ominous advance of reproductions of his naked form, that it is a crap idea.

    I'm with you on that. 7-8am is far too early to be doing anything else.

    Love it. Could just work :p:

    I'd probably have a shout out about epilepsy and bi-polarity... I feel strongly about the misconceptions the world at large has.

    Not do something politically or 'cause' motivated. That's just annoying.
