just stumbled across some wonderful literature/short stories taped on the the brick wall in Rose Alley. one page per character. about a dozen vingnettes in all. really moving stuff... so wish I had a camera with me.

has anyone else seen these? any idea who they're from?

would highly recommend seeking them out before Mother Nature washes them away.

I was walking along Tooley Street at 8.30am this morning and came across what looked like an art installation in the middle of the pavement outside London Bridge Hospital. It was titled "Objection, Your Honour" and comprised a sketch, half a dozen neck-ties, and 3-4 vacuum cleaner bags, all attached to a "canvas" of brown parcel tape stretched between to lamp-posts (did I forget to mention it was clearly *modern* art!!).

I was late for an appointment so didn't take a photo, but when I returned 40min later it had been taken down, presumably because it was blocking the pavement.

Are these two incidents related?

Perhaps SE1 is under attack from a group of Guerrilla Artists?
