I defer to the considered opinion of the eminent cultural critic and London resident Nan Taylor.

There are indeed a few 'strange' ones in the line up. No.2, Ms Tracey 'dirty bed and tampax' Emin's contribution might, for instance, be in another world (her mouth perhaps) but surely one or two deserve a bit more than 'old crap'.

Perhaps we can suggests which one is the least 'old crap'?

Mostly I agree with Nan Taylor! :lol:

Most are quite boring and uninspired. The five level podium being a particular low, as is Bridget Riley's wrapping paper.

I do like the one inspired by Big Ben, even if it does have a touch of the BBC Test Card about it. The one with the stopwatch with "GO" over the top of it just reminds me of illustrations from old coaching books from the 60s and 70s.
