A life-size bouncy castle version of Stonehenge, entitled Sacrilege is touring the UK this summer as a part of the London 2012 Festival and the Mayor of London Surprises Program.
Sacrilege Part 1 The Making Of Video:
Designed by Jeremy Deller, the winner of the 2004 turner prize, it's a great way to bring history to life for both young children and adults. I just wish it were touring here in the United States. Maybe someone will create an inflatable Grand Canyon.
Part 2 the Launch in Glasgow:
Sacrilege is a Co-Commission between the Mayor of London and Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. Sacrilege will be popping up across the UK and London as part of the London 2012 Festival and the Mayor of London Surprises programme, an amazing series of free performances and projects throughout the city from 21 June to 09 September.
