I miss Monty Cantsin because I never met him. He would not have liked this for the simple reason that he didn't think of it first.

I am going to break down my entire house and display it as participatory art. Kidding aside, I love the concept!

Empty room up for Turner Prize: "An empty gallery with a pair of flashing lights looks set to dominate discussion of this year's Turner Prize show, which opens in London on Wednesday. The installation, The Lights Going On and Off, is Martin Creed's contribution to the show displaying the work of the shortlist for the £20,000 prize. ...The annual show at Tate Britain consistently attracts attention, with Tracey Emin's installation of her bedroom-- My Bed--causing a stir in 1999. Simon Wilson of Tate Britain acknowledged that Creed's installation would generate a lot of interest, but said that they cannot please everybody. 'We just can't win,' he said. 'One year we have dirty knickers and an unmade bed and people complain, now we have something as pure and simple as this and people will still complain.'"

Brilliant link, thanks. Though there is an art to bed-making. When I'm lucky enough to stay at a Four Seasons hotel, where just sitting on the edge of the bed is like a general anaesthetic, they're so comfy, I always try to convince the maids to let me watch them make the bed. But it's a closely guarded secret. Only thing I know, from staking out my room at their Ritz hotel in Lisbon, is that it takes two and is highly synchronized. :-)

It's good to know that dada is not dead, but perhaps it should be.
