Church Times: Yoko Ono at St Pauls CathedralI was trying to find an excuse to plug an event put on by a charity I’m involved with. It’s an installation of two of Yoko Ono’s works, at St Paul’s Cathedral as part of the City of London Festival.

The major piece is Morning Beams, installed in the north transept, modelled by the artist for the Church Times (right), and explained a little bit on the ACE website (scroll down). One hundred white ropes like rays of light. I went to see it yesterday evening and it caught the late afternoon sun very well.

On exiting the cathedral, I saw the more easy piece to install: Wish Tree – a small tree or large shrub to which viewers are encouraged to attach a wish or a prayer on a piece of paper. I went up to it, and the first wish I saw was in Korean script. So here’s my excuse to plug the event, and armed with my mobile phone I took a snap as evidence.
