As part of the relaunch of the Museum of London, we are making a new work for the entrance hall called London Wall.  The work is a physical manifestation of the invisible city all around us; a poetic snapshot of social networking traffic from within a three-mile radius of the museum itself.  Over a ten-day period, publicly available status updates from popular websites like twitter and facebook will be selected then published as a vast array of posters revealing the idle mutterings of ourselves to ourselves as a form of concrete poetry.

The new displays open this Friday; from 28th May 2010, and we will be building the commission over the space of a week ending June 6th, so come along and see us there.  Works by The Singh Twins and Keith Coventry will also be on display.  Some more info here:

28 May -  5 September 2010
