The Fourth Plinth One & Other Project Ends: Chiari Malformations

The One & Other Antony Gormley project ended today in Trafalgar Square, London.

Among the many media reports and summaries of the project, Laura Hickman who represented Chiari Malformation awareness efforts during her hour on the Fourth Plinth has received additional attention.

The Times (UK) cites her hour as being on of the best of the 2400 individual hours in the project and says this about her:

"Laura Hickman: held up placards carrying the words of 30 sufferers of rare brain condition Chiari Malformation. Has since persuaded the NHS to recognise the condition, started work for Chicago's Chiari Centre Foundation, and plans to open a UK branch of the charity."

Excellent work!
