Bet coastguards will love this

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_pictures/4640513.stm

Barking or what??? Statues of people on a beach which will be covered by the tide every day!!!

Wonder how many rescue will take place? Wonder if anyone new to the are will go in and try to save them - drowning in the attempt??? Or else people will see someone in the water and think - oh look more statues!!!

Ever heard the one about the boy who cried "wolf"???

On the nail with this. North West news last night

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/m...de/4672563.stm

I'm all in favour of interactive art, but when the art is so interactive it threatens to kill people I'm not too sure. Maybe the artist is trying for a Darwinian effect - cleaning the gene pool. Anyway thats 5 teenagers rescued in 10 days so its only a matter of time!!
