During self isolation and social distancing there are many idle hands but
every Thursday these are put to good use applauding the NHS and
emergency services working hard to protect everyone from the Corona
APPLAUSE! has been created as a tribute to NHS staff and others,
to celebrate their
achievements and efforts but it can also apply to everyone in any
country working on the frontline.
I felt that there was a need to commemorate and recognise their
achievements and dedication and although we applaud every Thursday at 8
o'clock the applause hangs momentarily on the night air, then there is
I created ‘Applause!’ to highlight the public appreciation of
their commitment to our well being. It defines our national spirit.
I hope at some point it might be displayed in a hospital or
somewhere significant so we remember what they sacrificed for us.
Ultimately when this is all over I may apply for a permit to
erect a similar, larger monument on the fourth plynth in Trafalgar
I am isolated and working from my Isle of Wight, UK home. I
travel around with my charity and see inspiration everywhere and
am already working on another CV19 piece based on Africa experiences.
