Congratulations, Alfie Dennen and Paula Le Dieu! Their dead simple yet brilliant concept for putting art on the tops of bus stops was selected from a shortlist of 5 to win the London region commission for the Cultural Olympiad project, Artists Taking the Lead.
Spiky potatoes will pale into vaguely remembered gimmickry once Bus Tops are delivered and we're keen to follow how the project develops, how art is chosen and disseminated across the network. We're already looking forward to our upper deck and birds eye view from flats and offices being enhanced. Hopefully, here's a project to capture the imagination of people across the capital, potentially with a life beyond 2012. Roll on Bus Tops.
