Exciting news: it's early days yet, but for the next nine months we'll be the artists in residence at Brockwell Lido (in SE London, for those poor unfortunates who've never visited this stunning art deco pool). Never content with doing things by halves, we're going to be creating an artwork that will transform the entire pool - and we're also producing an art book that sums up the magic of the place and the experience of being in water. The whole project is called Memories of Water, so if you have any to share (beautiful, funny, scary, strange, old, new... whatever) email us and they'll become part of the work.

A quick - and slightly cheeky - heads up, to say that we've now started work on our Greenwich Peninsula commission. Can't say too much yet, but suffice to say: a) it's really exciting b) we'll be working with local arts group Stream and loads of local people/groups to make something very special c) it's going to be a large-scale participatory artwork that isn't crap (no really) d) we're going to invade the peninsula with a pair of solar-powered road signs that will be both the voice of power and the voice of the masses - and, not insignificantly, beautiful poetic objects in their own right e) it'll coincide with the general election and run for a month (in May/June) f) it'll present an alternative way for the people to be heard x) it'll be called A to X... y) we seem to have got a bit carried away with this quick post z) if anyone asks, you don't know nothing.
