Just a couple more photos from the city centre. The lads on BMXs seemed quite bemused when I had a chat with them about what I was doing but they were happy to do some stunts for me to photograph with the figure.
Quite a few people have accused me of being cruel for sending the children out like this – and when I’m in bed, hearing the rain against the window, thinking of them all fending for themselves I’m inclined to agree (how strong our anthropomorphic instinct is that I can lie in the dark worrying about lumps of clay!). I will post some reflections on the process and experience in the next few days.

I love this project… Seems a bit like Anthony Gormley crossed with http://www.bookcrossing.com!
