Artists 40 Days Tate project was a really original and invigorating
idea that captured the public's imagination in the run up to our bid to
host the Olympic Games 2012. It was very important to find some way
of embedding culture into the story in a high profile way, and I really
felt that his project captured that in a way that got a wide public
