This summer, sculptor Antony Gormley invites you to help create an astonishing living monument. He is asking the people of the UK to occupy the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, a space normally reserved for statues of Kings and Generals, in an image of themselves, and a representation of the whole of humanity.
I really, really, really do not go out of my way to look for things that will embarrass my kids, but oh my, I so want to be picked to go on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. I've applied, so there's nothing more I can do now except wait. But I woke up this morning thinking about it. I was so sure that this was a sign I rushed to my emails. Nothing. So I'm sending positive thoughts out there.
I'm even being nice to pigeons. And that hurts.
You can apply yourself here, but let me tell you this - if you get in and I don't, I will find a way to climb up there to join you....
