This summer, the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square will be transformed by Antony Gormley’s interactive piece ‘One and Other’. The project invites members of the public to occupy the plinth for one hour continuously for a period of 100 consecutive days. The process will involve 2,400 selected applicants from all over the UK who are free the respond with their own ideas on the basis they are alone and their activities are legal, and can take what ever they are able to carry on to the plinth. The first person will take their place on the Plinth at 9a.m. on Monday 6 July.'My project is about trying to democratise this space of privilege, idealisation and control. This is about putting one of us in the place of a political or military hero.' Antony Gormley
