One and Other: Karen Head on the Fourth Plinth





Atlanta poet Karen Head made history today by being the only American visiting London to stand on the Fourth Plinth as part of the living art project One and Other. She read one of my poems to the crowd (yay!) and also work by Julie Blomeke, JC Reilly, Christine Swint, David Matthew Barnes and more. Via Twitter, she also collected lines for an "exquisite corpse" poem called "Monumental." Above are screenshots from the live feed from Trafalgar Square. TIME magazine covered her appearance on the Plinth. Check back for more links and I'm sure Karen will have some comments up soon at her blog

Great pics, Collin. how did you get them as still shots? It was so much fun to be writing with Karen and all of you during real time. I loved your line about the sunny London day. That was fast thinking, too.
