Currency of ideas

We just want to say thank you to whoever thought they would spend their time applying various kinds of sticky tape to this little part of Lewisham Way yesterday.

The Spirograph-meets-Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends pattern made our journey to work this morning that bit nicer.

We reckon 10 art follies are worth one new gallery in terms of our quality of life, while 20 might be worth a new shop selling useful things, 30 would pay for a new cafe and 40 guerilla artworks are probably the equivalent of a new bar or restaurant opening in the area. So in lieu of either of the latter appearing, this has provided about 1/40th of the joy, which is no mean feat for a bit of sellotape.

Go see it at the junction of Manor Avenue and Lewisham Way. Hopefully it's nothing to do with ley lines.
