Enter The Green Net: "Can it be we're seeing a Dragon?"

Yesterday we mentioned that the route of John Prescott's Battle Bus these next three days traces the route from one end of the mythical green net Dragon to the other. This creature (above) was discovered by American Land artists Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison in a show commissioned and created by MMU as part of Artstranspennine 98. IDEA and our buddies at IAC created some interactive web-art to go with this fantastical eco-art. Though at the time of tapping the archive of this meisterwerk escapes me.

As mentioned the mouth of the creature is in East Hull where John Prescott will arrive on Sunday. And the City of Culture 2008 is the fundamental opposite.
