A-X signing off

After three weeks, three locations (the Pleasaunce, East Greenwich Jetty and Central Park) and more than their fair share of trials and tribulations, our beautiful signs are heading home to the icy north. Until the brilliant Craig finishes his documentary about their tour of the Greenwich Peninsula, these few pictures will be their last words. Once again, a huge thank you to everyone involved...

A-X afloat

A-X has just moved to this handsome jetty on the Thames. New location, 180 new messages - that look great under grey English summer skies as well as the sun that will hopefully make an appearance this weekend. To find them, just walk 100m along the Thames Path south from the O2 - you can't miss them. Each cycle of messages lasts 30minutes - they'll make you smile, sigh and think... or your money back. The settings are way too grand to be done any justice by these tiny pics, so do try to get down there if you can... Next Thursday they'll be moving to their final destination - Central Park (Greenwich, not Manhattan... next year maybe). As ever, full details can be found at the Stream website.

A-X has landed

After six months of public consultation and exploration, A-X has arrived in the Greenwich Peninsula. We'll write full info in due course, but for now here's a hasty pic of one of the two signs in the beautiful East Greenwich Pleasaunce... crazy name, lovely location. The signs will be here until Thursday 10th June, when they'll move to a stunning site on East Greenwich Jetty (hovering over the Thames just south of the O2) and then a week after that they'll move again to Central Park (on the peninsula, just north of the lovely Pilot Inn) for their final seven days. Catch them while you can!... For more info go to Stream Arts (the commissioning group).
