I was wandering around the South Bank yesterday waiting for friends as we had tickets to see a recording of Have I Got News for You – and saw a small plastic bag sellotaped to one of the lamp posts with a big sticker saying “Pick Me Up!”.

Being nosy – I did, and inside is a postcard and a note.

It is part of an art project, Homing Smidgen to create 100 collages then deposit them around London.

The idea is that people find them, log on a website where they were found – then drop the card off at a different location.

Quite interesting – I am off out for lunch shortly and shall dutifully sellotape the package to something in the Canary Wharf estate.

I like these sorts of things.


I got number 37 – theme is architecture, which is apt considering how much I am interested in architecture.

The package is below (click for larger versions)



Incidentally, the recording was great fun, and Moira Stewart was the host – you can see it on BBC1 on Saturday. Apparently something called “football” is more important and they had to move the program from its normal Friday slot.
