What would you do if you were on show?

A person stood on a plinth in Trafalgar Square

A new work of art has been unveiled in London and it's people who are the stars of the show!

Every hour, every day until 14 October a person will stand on a plinth in Trafalgar Square in London and do whatever they want.

One person is going to be riding an exercise bike while another will use semaphore flags to write a message.

So if you had to stand on a plinth for an hour, what would you do with your time?

And would you wear anything special to make your point?
