That looks like so much fun. I hope I can make it down to London to see some of those.

My favourite so far is the Bompas & Parr one in Burlington Arcade. It doubles as a bubblegum machine...

This is so very cool and a very smart twist on the 'installing random fiberglass animals in cities' idea.

I'm an American visiting London next week and this is just one more thing to be jazzed about!

I saw a few tonight, including the St Martin's Lane one, which was fuckin' trippy. It SWAYS and the lights CHANGE COLOUR and there are these SWIRLING PATTERNS and seriously, it's like you're tripping ovoids.
