Radiohead's Frontman Calls on Fans to Help Him Create Space Art

frontman is calling on fans and friends to help him create a huge human art image of 11th century Viking leader Canute that is visible from space. Yorke is developing the ambitious project with bosses at environmental charity 350 EARTH to raise awareness about the globe's climate-change issues.

His 'statue' will be one of 16 created around the globe and photographed by satellites on the eve of a United Nations meeting in Cancun, Mexico, according to Spinner. In a post on Radiohead's website, Yorke writes, "The plan is to make images visible from the skies to remind those in Cancun that we are running out of time. We can't keep putting this off."

Yorke designed the image with longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood, who has created all of Radiohead's album art. He is taking RSVPs for the event through the 350 EARTH website. The building work will start at 11 A.M. on November 27 at an undisclosed location near Brighton, England. Yorke needs 1,999 people to help him create the space art.
