UK street artist Contra installed a life-size cut out of Prime Minister Gorden Brown on the south bank opposite The Houses of Parliament in London. Also attached was a speech bubble made with dry-erase board material, allowing each stranger to add his own voice. The video is a touch long, but has some very nice moments. We love projects like this that encourage public participation. Reminds us of Ji Lee’s bubble project.

We did something similar just the other week, inspired by an article in Adbusters that came out a long time ago :
For the launch of the International Week of Action Against Racism in Geneva, we transformed commercial posters into open public forums. Check the photos on here : http://www.tako.ch/blog/semaine-internationale-dactions-contre-le-racisme-310/
Why did the security take it away? Is speech in the UK really restricted?
