Greenlit: One & Other, Sky Arts

One & Other (1×90′ TBC)  Mike Figgis is making a documentary that will chronicle the 100 days of Antony Gormley’s ‘living sculpture’ on the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square. Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days a different member of the public takes their place as a living sculpture, which is called One & Other.  There is a live-streaming website that will show what’s happening until  then end of the project on 14 October, 2009.

In the artwork a different member of the public occupies the space every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break. Figgis also helped set up the website that is live-streaming what happens on the plinth throughout Gormley’s One & Other project, which ends on 14 October.

The film is likely to be an hour or 90 minutes long and is a sign of the increasing ambitions of Sky Arts, the channel which today launches a series of theatre plays to be broadcast live. This is the first time this has occurred on British television in a quarter of a century.

Recently Sky Arts announced that former Tory Cabinet minister Michael Portillo had been hired to front the channel’s exclusive coverage of the Glyndebourne festival.

“It’s a real coup for us to get Mike, who is an extraordinary director and we are very excited about it,” Sky Arts director John Cassy told
