Collaborative Construction And Fantastic Facts Help Build The 2012 Olympic Park
A team of artists is building a part of the 2012 Olympic Park in London, with the help of the community at large.
In preparation for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Fantastic Factology is bringing an element of collaborative construction to the development of the new 2012 Olympic Park. Organizing “a unique cultural project celebrating fantastic and surprising things in life,” a team of London-based artists and designers have been commissioned by London 2012 to develop a series of landscape features in the park, including The Klassnik Corporation, We Made That, and Riitta Ikonen (who shared her art with the PSFK audience during her talk at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON 2010).
The team of artists is gathering interesting and eclectic contributions from members of the public that will be part of the final structures. Fantastic Factology explains below:
Over the next two months Fantastic Factology will be offering members of the public the opportunity to submit a fantastic fact for their chance to make a permanent contribution to the new Olympic Park. Donate a fact about anything, whether expert or everyday and it could be selected for engraving onto a plaque on one of the many benches in the Park to create a moment of curiosity for generations of future visitors.
Fact submissions can be made through a dedicated website, www.fantastic-factology.com, or at one of the special ‘Fact-Fest’ workshops to be held in the London 2012 host boroughs in March 2011.
