Martin Creed is planning a major performance for the opening of the London 2012 Olympics. He is creating Work No. 1197: All the Bells in a Country Rung as Quickly and as Loudly as Possible for Three Minutes. It is set to happen at 8 am on 27 July. Creed is asking everyone with access to a bell (bicycle bells, doorbells, church bells etc.) to join in. The Central Council of Bell Ringers, who one imagines are always on for something a little different (#irony), will not be playing. You can catch some of Martin Creed's work on show at Michael Lett in Auckland until 12 May.

STUPID, STUPID, STUPID: THE MISTAKES WE MAKE
Thanks to OTN’s limited understanding of the International dateline, and the fact that Twitter etc call 'local time' where ever you happen to be, the dates in timeline for the Rhana Devenport appointment post are all one day early (apart from AAG’s 13 May media release). The story in fact started on the Monday (when staff were told) rather than on Sunday so no embargo was involved. The order is the same and so, unfortunately, was the low-key response.
