Britglyph is a public art project across Great Britain that you create, just by taking part.

Britglyph: Over halfway there!

What a fantastic ride this has been so far. The Christmas jollies saw rather a lot of you out and Britglyphing, taking us past the halfway mark. We are now entering a critical juncture for the project, with 28 markers left to visit and claim.

These 28 places extend across the country, but there are certainly some boltholes, largely I think due to the fact that they are rather rural areas, and perhaps people there are just that much harder to reach through online/social media channels.

Considering that, I am asking you (yes, you!) if you can help. The thing about "Social Media" is that it's just that: social. The Britglyph project was engineered to rely on you taking part in various ways; finding your closest marker and taking part directly, telling friends about it, blogging/writing about it, etc. We're now at the stage where I (just little old me right now!) am not able to personally reach into all these places effectively enough to find people who want to take part, so I hope that the social model works, and I can rely on your help.

Below are the locations of the markers that are still left to claim by the nominal end of the project, 9th January. Do any of them look familiar? Remind you of someone you know that happens to live there or closeby? Do you live in one of these locations or near? If you can, please do take a moment to have a look/pass on, and help make the largest piece of art ever attempted a reality.
