Beginning July 6th, 2009 the Fourth Plinth in the north west of Trafalgar Square is home to Antony Gormley's One & Other, 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.
The plinth is being occupied by different people every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days. "The Fourth Plinth" is being webcast live 24 hours a day until October 14th. Everyday, every hour a different person will participate in this art event.
