I suppose all sculptors should take note here, 3rd party insurance is not enough! Your "Bang" would make a mess!

Hi, Robert

This is what I mean about artists creating BIG artworks needing to be qualified engineers. And Dreamspace was a tried and tested design! One freak gust wind of wind and the artist is on a charge.

Insurance is becoming really expensive too. I recall last year a borough council cancelled a traditional pancake race because it couldn't afford the insurance premium!
