OLD Rejects Olafur
More good sense on trashy "art" projects! The Olympic Lottery Distributor (OLD) has rejected an application of £1m for an art project intended to be the centrepiece of the London 2012 Festival. Scandinavian conceptual "artist" Olafur Eliasson had been commissioned to create a work for the event and came up with Take A Deep Breath (title link). What a joke! London air is so polluted that the EU is threatening to impose a fine of £300m on London if it doesn't improve its air quality. It is estimated that over 4,000 Londoners die an early death every year from air pollution.
