- The project has to carry a public consensus;
- The art object should have a narrative that is relevant to the history and heritage of where it is located;
- It has to be a permanent feature;
- People should be allowed to touch and feel it to generate a sense of ownership.
Though I am loathe to criticise, and it doesn't come from any philistinic tendencies, I don't think that the lighted buoys in Cardigan meet any of these rules. A permanent, physical commemoration of 'yr Arglwydd Rhys' and the first Eisteddfod is a better idea will be here in a 68 years time when the 1000th anniversary is celebrated. Time to change some minds.
