It seems that the "4th Plinth" in 'Trafalgar Square' is undergoing a selection process to determine just WHAT ought to occupy that, with all manner of 'schemes' for it all. Check them out:

WHICH would YOU most LIKE to have for this?

I heard about this on the radio yesterday. I like the sound of Gormley's living sculpture thing - I'd even be up for a shift myself! Even better if I could persuade someone to come up with me - what a cool place to play a game...

Specious arguments are not proof of trollish intent.

I think a statue of the Robber from Settlers of Catan would be great. Probably pretty easy to do, too. Moreover, it should be painted in funky colors and have applique flowers all over it. That ought to stump those weirdo Englishmen and their nutty girlfriends. Or just go with the Meerkats. Who doesn't love Meerkats?

I too am tempted to volunteer for my hour on the plinth, even if its 3am and no-one's watching!

Actually I like almost all the proposals this time round. The ship in a bottle looks rather wonderful. And meerkats!

Isn't that what turns it into art...?

The ship in a bottle does sound cool. Meerkats is good, and better if you read why Ms Emin is suggesting it.

I think my answer would be self evident, but I really do like the Meerkats shown and the title of the peace.

Of course I could volenteer to do an hour then there would be people and Meerkats. laugh

The ship in the bottle looks cool. The others for me look and sound pretty stupid., but I guess stupid = art.
