A day out at Audley End, Queen Elizabeth I turned up to greet us.
Far left is the garage used in the opening sequence of The Prisoner, the Lotus 7 drives out after McGoohan resigns.
I was in The Photographer's Gallery and spotted this strange scene outside the window. I uploaded the picture to Instagram and within a few hours the students who were taking pictures and posing under the silver foil had got in touch.

It seems Number 6's rebellious nature is once again being used to spur the public into action, to question and to examine their own thoughts and beliefs, and that of society. The art seems to be part of a wider campaign by a someone called SmileStreetArt. They have a number of Prisoner related posters/quotes, and each one seems to be a one off piece.
I emailed the artist who had only recently become aware of the series, they said: "Our friendly Number Six obviously represents the outsider and the non-conformist, he is defiantly individual and anti-collective, and it is these qualities that resonate with me.”
