Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood is working with Yorke on project
He wrote a message in an attempt to recruit “2,000 people who want to be part of [a] human King Canute [Viking king who ruled England from 1016–1035] type image facing the sea that is visible from space” at 11am (GMT) next Saturday. The exact location of the meet-up is yet to be announced.
As outlined on Earth.350.org, the first 2,000 people to RSVP to the request will be guaranteed a spot in the sculpture. Those taking part have been asked to wear black and dress warmly.
A message on the site explains: “Please also note that we will create the human sculpture even if it rains and is stormy, since weather is a central character in this art piece. Yes, this sounds mad but since we’re recreating the story of King Canute it works.”
