If you are as big an Archers fan as I am, you have known about this project for months :)

It's only some 36 hours since the start of One and Other, Antony Gormley's project for the fourth plinth, began, but it's already provoked intensive debate. Watching a succession of people stand for an hour each in London's Trafalgar Square on the live feed has proved far more compelling than the 10th series of Big Brother - at least according to Twitter, where the tag #oneandother effortlessly cruised past that referring to the Channel 4 series.

Yesterday, we asked you to help us cover the project in its entirety, via our Plinth Watch flickr group and Twitter feed. Both captured the things we might have missed. For instance, Grayson Perry popping down in full drag:

Twitter provided an instant commentary on everyone who took part in One and Other. Bar owner Scott Illmann didn't go down too well.

: Fourth plinth is now occupied by a man advertising a pub chain. I feel sorry for London. And Gormley.

bravenewmalden asked:

Are two people allowed on the plinth simultaneously? If so, who wants to be the other half of a pantomime horse?

Suren Seneviratne, who was dressed as a panda, demonstrated the essential unpredictablity of the enterprise.

Mr Panda is "getting quite annoyed" and wants to get down. He says he is disturbed that "everyone down there looks so bored"

As did the bagpiper who provided a less than soothing background to proceedings:

: someone really should give that bagpiper a tenner to clear off now

Once the night drew on and the pubs had closed, things started getting rowdy.

: Pub closing means this guy is being heckled something rotten. A tad concerned as this is the time slot I've drawn.

Then there was the 3am striptease.

3am woman has music, a lot of layers and, starting with Michael Jackson, may be attempting the slowest, least-sexy strip ever.

Then, at 6am came the man who promised to "dress as a cow and perform six different poses, jigs or tasks" but perhaps should have practised first.

: We now know how hard it is to operate a mobile phone while dressed as a cow

There was more controversy today, first courtesy of a man dressed as human faeces, then later on by Jaskaran Sarkaria, whose impassioned attack on the bankers was described by emero as "heckling in reverse".

All this and we've got another 98 days to go. Please keep your tweets and pictures coming.
