Is It a Bird?

After aeons of construction, King's Cross, where I work, is finally starting to get a little bit more interesting. First, came the art students from Central St Martins. Then, came eat.st, N1's (small) answer to Exmouth Market, with a selection of different food stalls every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Red Herring Smokehouse's bacon sarnies and Homeslice's pizzas have been my favourites so far.

Then last week, a giant birdcage appeared. This is art, apparently--the Identified Flying Object, more specifically--and eventually, the cage will have a swing inside and will, once a month, be lit up and suspended from a crane. And yes, the artist is French (a nicer sight for French visitors entering St Pancras than the smug Olympic rings, I suppose!).

Inevitably, I had to take advantage of the birdcage with a few leaps, some of which look like some seriously advanced pole-dancing. The other advantage of having the art students around is that you're never going to be the weirdest person on eat.st...
