Sue on the Plinth

frostfox was on The Plinth this afternoon. Many loyal friends came to watch her. Others of us stayed at home, watching the loyal friends watch her on The Plinth.

For those of you not following the latest in UK art world news, the fourth sculpture plinth in Trafalgar Square has, for years, been featuring a rotating installation, every six months or so. Currently, Antony Gormley is showing off the people of Britain there, one person at a time. Each one has an hour up there, all webcast. The space is allocated by lottery.

How weird. I just tuned in randomly to find a woman reciting the lyrics to Joy Division's "She's lost control" and then taking a mobile phone call to say how she thought it was going so far.

Gosh. I can see myself in the third picture, just to the right of the lamp-post, standing with watervole, alexmc and the_magician. Luckily, I am probably the only one to know that the person in question was me.

Thank you for labeling! I figured that there were more people in those screencaps I knew than I could identify from the low resolution of the images. I can tell who the four of you are now within that cluster.

That must be after I left (about 20 past) I was standing next to watervole earlier on.

If only I had made it back from the grocery store sooner! I only caught that last 20 minutes or so, so missed you.

Cool! I read about this in the L.A. Times. It's neat to know someone (at least by a degree of separation) who was involved! :)
