Media coverage of Manchester Time Piece

We were delighted with the amount of media attention that Manchester Time Piece got, particularly with the support of the MEN who published 2 articles, and put an animated shadow map on their website, updating it as we tweeted our location.  We were also pleased to see Paul, the Guardian photographer and have the project featured on the Guardian’s Northener blog. Below are links to some of the press coverage.
