I managed to catch half an hour of the live streaming on Sky Arts tonight.  Presented as usual by Clive Anderson, the guest commentator was Dan Cruickshank.  His top 5 were  Nicholas Cornwall who spent his hour putting sticking written names of people around the plinth: a kind reminder not to forget them perhaps?

Hiker Celia Clayton built a dry-stone wall.  Kate Davis slept in a sleeping bag (by choice) therefore subtly  drawing attention to the plight of the many homeless people who have no choice (and half the time, no sleeping bag).  Paul Crofts made a man out of mirrors………….. (?)  and Cruickshank’s top pick was Amy Wineslinger (?) who started out looking like a draped statue, before stripping and turning into what looked like an exhibit from Professor Gunther Von Hagens ‘Body Worlds’ exhibition!  I wrote a post about him HERE.  Ms Wineslinger had painted her body to look like  she had been plastinated – Great fun lol!
