Hell’s bells

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.
