Fourth plinth announcement

Yinka Shonibare’s Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle Walking back to the flats with a group of students yesterday, we talked a little about the Fourth Plinth project* - what I hadn't realised was that they'd just announced the 2011 and 2012 commissions just that morning!

Both the proposals I voted for ('Sikandar' and 'It’s Never Too Late And You Can’t Go Back') made the short list, but not the final cut, but the two chosen were probably my 3 and 4 of the final six. I am quite glad it wasn't th ATM/Organ, as someone who'd have to live with it long after the novelty would have worn off!

(*We were talking about One & Other, which was one of my all time favourite public art pieces.)
