Show me the money

This year’s prestigious Turner prize has been won by artist Mark Wallinger for his dramatic and innovative work whereby he submitted a film of himself dressed as a bear prowling Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie for 10 nights in a row.

The prize for the winner of the award is £25,000.00.


In recognition of the 'evils of imperialism and unrestrained capitalism' I asked our second born to wander around each room in our house and shout ‘J’accuse’ for 15 minutes. At each stop I took a photograph from which I will make a collage which if viewed from a distance and squinted at will appear to be a preserved ‘hadrosaur’.


If the Turner committee could please send my cheque now I would be most grateful.

Yes, I would submit this for next year's prize. If that doesn't win (and I can't see why it wouldn't), try your unmade bed - it worked for Tracey Emin after all :-)

Cool kid in the pirate outfit, Grendel - when are you putting up the collage, by the way?
