One and other

I am completely glued to the webcam showing footage of members of the public on the fourth plinth on Trafalgar Square.

Visit here to see what is happening now.

For those who don't know what I'm on about; the fourth plinth has been taken over by Anthony Gormley, a British sculptor who is famous for works including Angel of the North and the lonely men which took over Crosby beach (near Liverpool) and also spent a time on top of some of London's tallest buildings. Gormley has invited members of the public to spend an hour on the plinth over the next few months and people have applied in their thousands.

The webcam is clear as crystal, and it is addictive watching what each occupier of the plinth chooses to do. Nice to see so many have chosen to do something for charity (i.e. beg for money, release sponsored balloons etc) and it will be good to see other creative ways people choose to spend their fifteen (well, sixty) minutes of fame.
