Ripples Wins

London-based Japanese artist Kazuya Tsuji has won the Grange Garden Sculpture Prize 2011 with this plan for an installation thingy Ripples to tart up darkest Bermondsey in south London. The award brings him prize money of £5,000 and up to £35,000 for materials to build his thingy. It has something to do with the aesthetics of Zen philosophy, whatever they are. Whether the denizens of Bermondsey will appreciate a dollop of Zen in their garden remains to be seen. I don't suppose anyone bothered to ask them.
