Bollards to the lot of you!

When is a bollard not a bollard? When it's a piece of public art, of course!

Next time you're in Cardiff city centre you may spy people peering intently into metal bollards dotted around the Hayes and St David's shopping centre.

They're looking at Post Secrets by Jane Edden. Monochrome figurines can be seen inside the metal bollards by looking through a small peep hole.

It was commissioned by the Safle consultancy and St David's partnership as part of a £1.5m public art project.

The brief was to create artworks that would fit in with the surroundings and wouldn't clutter the space.

I think we have discovered the 'street art' section of my next Friday night out with Sean in Cardiff.
