London artist Heather Phillipson’s first put forward her proposal for the plinth in 2016, which she claims to be the same year she lost her sense of humour. Then due to worldwide lockdown, the installation date had to be pushed back. A giant red cherry sits precariously on top of a huge dollop of whipped cream, almost mouth-watering but then you notice the absurdly large fly. What makes this fourth plinth sculpture special is the drone, which casts live images of Trafalgar Square, from the top of the sculpture 24hrs a day, seven days a week. What goes on in Trafalgar Square, stays in.. I mean, streams to any wifi device in the world.
