One and Other - Day 11

Photos from the afternoon of Day 11 of the project. A carnival atmosphere prevailed in Trafalgar Square through sun and showers. The crowd were far too good-humoured to justify the comparison of some critics with the spectacle of public executions past - an occasional heckler, but no baying mob. Watch the action and inaction on the live webstream at:

2.00 - 3.00pm Anonymous -listened to his ipod and did little else except throw the occasional paper aeroplane. The legend on his t-shirt read 'There are at least 2 views', though this didn't apply to opinions of his performance.

3.00 - 4.00pm Under_Surveillance sat in a rainstorm under his umbrella writing on a laptop, presumably making a point, though not in an interesting way

4.00-5.00pm Bushewacker, aka Tim Bushe, a London architect, gave the crowds something more interesting to watch, taking only 45 minutes of his allotted hour on the plinth to make a 360 degree drawing of Trafalgar Square inside an acetate tube to support hft, Home Farm Trust, a charity that cares for people with learning difficulties. The drawing is to be auctioned on ebay from 24th July:

5.00-6.00pm Rosemary -auctioned her artwork for a dyspraxia charity
