One person: One plinth: One hour.

Anthony Gormley is commandeering the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square for an art event that lasts 24/7 for three months starting in July. Anyone can apply for a one hour slot to do anything you want on top of the plinth, as long as it’s legal. To register your interest, go to www.one&other.co.uk and sign up. The sky is the limit!
