Got plans for this Friday? Pub? Cinema? What you’re probably not doing is completing a mammoth swan pedalo adventure from the Hastings coast all the way to the Olympic site in Hackney. And why not? Because you are neither artist Andrew Kotting nor psychogeographer Iain Sinclair, who describe their extraordinary trip “as as an act of ‘Dada performance’ or as a response to the spirit of Olympic diversity and ambition.” They have been helped along the way by a diverse range of pedalo-fans, including Alan Moore and Stewart Lee, and a film is in the pipeline. A swantastic effort all round!
