Standing room only

In July, UK sculptor Antony Gormley will be starting his Fourth Plinth Project One Person. One hour. One & Other, in London’s Trafalgar Square. Gormley’s idea is to have the empty plinth occupied by a living person for 24 hours a day for 100 days. Cute. If you want to join the fun you can apply for an hour’s worth here or check out more about the project here. Some housekeeping: no pets, wheel chairs welcome.

When we last looked there had been 13,973 applications for the 2,400 available places, but there is a lottery style selection so if you’re in London between July and October you still have a chance. Now we're waiting for someone to suggest a similar stunt on the copy-cat plinths outside Te Papa.
