Brighton 350 EARTH project

Fancy being part of a live sculpture created by Thom Yorke of Radiohead fame?

Part of’s EARTH project, the live sculpture will be formed in Brighton on 27th November with the help of 2000 volunteers and will be viewable from space!

Where: Brighton, UK

When: 11AM Saturday November 27, 2010

What: A recreation of the legendary King Canute, trying but failing to command the ocean, created by Thom Yorke (of Radiohead) and Stanley Donwood.

What you need to do to take part:

To take part simply join our Brighton Earth Facebook Event page where you’ll find details of how to sign up or if you're not on Facebook go to the 350org Earth website.

Please note:
  • The first 2,000 people that RSVP will be guaranteed a spot in the Thom Yorke sculpture. (The remainder will be placed on a waiting list.)
  • All participants must arrive at 11am and be able to stay until 13hr on Saturday November 27, 2010.
  • Participants must please wear all black since your body will literally be the "paint" that makes this drawing.
  • Please also be sure to dress warmly, bring rain gear (just in case) and water. Everyone will be provided with a black poncho/mac.
  • Please also note that we will create the human sculpture even if it rains and is stormy, since weather is a central character in this art piece. Yes, this sounds mad but since we're recreating the story of King Canute it works.

More about’s EARTH project

This November 20-28, 350 EARTH launches the world’s first ever global climate art project. In locations across the globe, citizens and artists will create massive public art installations to show how climate change is impacting our world. Each art installation will be large enough to be seen from space.

In the UK 350 are working with Thom Yorke from Radiohead, to design and create a giant image that will have aerial photographs taken of it, as part of a group of works that can be seen from space.

Brighton has been selected as one of the 18 iconic locations across the planet to take part in the project.
