Dear Pierre The entry attached Dream Team Art Gamble is a Microsoft word Doc. You would need to designate a dreamteam@thecentre space on your website if you werre to get it going properly. Mind you the whole thing is just a wind-up really but it might be fun to set the ball rolling and kick off the new season with a little fun. Best Regards Tim Flitcroft

Decision Piece

A coin flipped as an aid to making a decision, then flipped again (and again?) until the result is that for which one unconsciously hoped.

an economist, probably would see in these stones the turning point - when the use value became nothing and the exchange value became everything.

I attach my subscriber's submission. The work "Have a nice Spray" should be sent out the week before you intend to display it to all subscribers inviting them to download it, add their own graffiti tag/message in PhotoShop or free paintbox programmes and sending it back to you, copied to Then two days before you are due to send it as the formal work I will download all submissions, and with minimal curatorial intervention mount the collective submissions across the surface in PhotoShop again. The final work could not only be displayed on your site but as it is legal, unassailable virtual tagging it has multiple potential posting sites - both online on as an attachment to mail to McDonalds internet pr sites, news groups etc and physical as a real full size poster version remounted over the same hoarding that is bound to be put up next May Day or indeed on any pitch at a MacDonalds near you. The image attached should be sent out with this text. " On MayDay 2002 MacDonalds' placed these temporary art display sites outside their premises on Oxford Street. Sadly due to the engrossing mass football match progressing down Oxford Street, most artists were unable to take full advantage of this unexpected largess. Therefore we are proud to represent the Macdonald's potable graffiti wall for you own creative delight. Have a nice Spray. " Please feel free to add to the wall any message or image in PhotoShop or paintbox or whatever takes your fancy and return to and by to allow collation...... Your collective effort will as far as possible be assembled and completed and sent to all participants as well as being posted to appropriate sites across the world. <> Hope you like the idea, the exhibitions been good so far - have been following Ken's Diary. The work can be identified as that of Sarah Andrew or Sarahtonin

Grüss Dich! Ich habe eine kleine Bitte an Dich: Freunde von mir bereisen zur Zeit Deutschland. Sie haben mich gefragt, ob ich ihnen eine Möglichkeit eröffnen könne, irgendwo zu wohnen, ohne dass große Kosten entstehen. Ich selber bin leider nicht da. Sie sind daran gewöhnt in ihrem mitgebrachtenZelt zu wohnen und brauchen eigentlich nur ein kleines Stück Land zum Aufbau des Zeltes und ab und zu ein Abendessen. Ich habe ihnen - dein Einverständnis vorausgesetzt - deinen Namen, deine Telefonnummer und Anschrift genannt. Sie werden sich in den nächsten Tagen bei Dir melden, und ich bin Dir schon jetzt für die Unterstützung dankbar. Sie kommen mit einem grünen und einem weißen Mercedes. Damit Du sie erkennst, findest Du ein Foto in der Anlage

Dear Pierre,   Thank you for the wonderful surprises in my mailbox. This work is based upon the account in James Joyce's biography by Richard Ellman. Naughty James kept a pair of doll underwear in his pocket. Sometimes at the dinner table he  would trot them out for the amusement of his friends.   Best, Heather Ryan Kelley

I was thinking over your Brink lighting idea. i`m not saying its not do-able (trannies and links still available at cost), Lawson however wants to cover his ass and I think the way he wants to do it is to put brink on hold and use it only if his light industrials don`t realise. For 2002 we have the major conversion of south to do - you are penciled for op. chief, so I am hoping you will concentrate on this major task in hand and leave the brain child until the picture with Dave is clearer. On a totally different note, Amy was talking with Fish about a rubber plant campaign, ie. get rid of them, he wants to get everyone`s opinion first and suggestions for replacements. Apparantly the one`s on her floor are rotting or something! If you want to talk at all please drop by,

Andy Figgis

09/11/02 40 minutes drawing

4.0 4.1 I determine to produce one tracing today using line only.

4.2 I begin at 11am.

4.3 I determine to use only one pencil and to trace only the marks made by the previous occupant (the marks, the staples, the Velcro),my previous interactions (staples; used to mount the paper) and any protrusions from the wall i.e. screws used to mount the wall and small bumps where the paint has dried. (The marks made by others; technicians, caretakers).

4.4 I begin drawing , I note my position.

4.5 I draw quickly from top to bottom.

4.6 The paper is hung vertically in rolls like wallpaper.

4.7 I move from left to right but I notice that I draw from right to left a result of my left-handedness.

4.8 I stand on a chair.

4.9 I stand.

4.10 I bend.

4.11 I squat.

4.12 I determine to work quickly and simply trace or record the marks; I do not want to impose my will on the wall.

4.13 Sometimes I deviate from my course recording top-right-left, middle-centre, left, right, bottom right, centre, left , top, right, centre, left, middle-centre, right, left, bottom-centre, right, left but never left-centre-right.

4.14 I never deviate from the roll.

4.15 My pencil begins to blunt.

4.16 I determine that I will continue without sharpening the pencil.

4.17 This and the pencil¹s interaction with the wall determines the marks I make; thickness of line, pressure on paper.

4.18 I feel like I am working more quickly. Is this because I feel that the condition of the pencil may not allow me to finish the recording or is this an illusion because I have imposed certain conditions on this exercise ( i.e. to work quickly and use only one pencil)?

4.19 My hand cramps, this sparks a memory; sitting in the exam hall at St. Peter¹s Grammar school ; the pressure to finish an exam.

4.20 I change the way I hold my pencil.

4.21 This changes the marks I make.

4.22 The cramp stops, I resume my normal hand position.

4.23 Cramp.

4.24 Change.

4.25 Stop.

4.26 Change.

4.27 Pencil becoming blunter, I turn it in my hand.

4.28 Stand on chair, bend, stand , squat, move chair, stand, bend, stand , squat, left-right,right-left, bottom-right.

4.29 Stop. Mask off area of chair at stop position.

4.30 Note time; 11.40.

4.31 Record details on masking-tape on floor using pencil -40 mins. Drawing exercise using Berol Turquoise HB Pencil.

4.32 Walk back to start point with chair.

4.33 Determine approximate start point by looking at first recording.

4.34 Site chair. Mask off start position. Record start time 11am.

4.35 Place chair in work space.

4.36 Photograph pencil ,mount pencil on wall.

4.37 Photograph course from stop to start.

4.38 Close-up/stop position.

4.39 Close-up/start position.

4.40 Photograph course from start to stop.

4.41 Back to front/right to left.
