Artist Chris Helson has presented a petition to the Scottish Parliament asking for a plot of land within the boundary of the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood to be defined in law as 'a place where any one person has the right to lay down'. The size of the plot, he said, would be defined as the size of the person lying down. His intention is to initiate a dialogue about the territories the new parliament is generating and the effects of 'democratic' forces on the process. The petition is part of Helson's work at Holyrood for the Scottish Year of the Artist residency programme.
