Anthony Gormley - Fourth Plinth - One and Other

Yesterday saw the first day of Anthony Gormley taking over the fourth plinth. As I was traveling most of today I managed to get through a fair share of newspapers. The big question that was underlying in all of the articles was the concept of art and what is art? In an age of facebook it seems that art is art yes but also for me it seems to be more in some ways it needs to be a community and interaction. People are hidden away in their own homes communicating through electronic devices, yet experience and the production of experience seems to answer a desire to be sociable. We are sociable beings.
