Latitudes was invited by the Royal Society of Arts to curate a public commission for London [51º 30’ N, 0º 07’ W] and selected Danish artist Tue Greenfort to develop a public project focusing on London’s ecological and social systems.

The commission took place in the context of the RSA's programme Arts & Ecology, with the aim of examining and addressing environmental concerns in the international arena. Arts & Ecology explores the practice of artists, writers, architects and film-makers through a series of conferences, commissions and publications that look at local and global projects that attempt to communicate, challenge and propose solutions to pollution, waste and loss of natural habitats.

Following a period of residency in London in 2007, Greenfort's public commission was presented in the capital coinciding with his participation in Frieze Art Fair projects (16-19 October 2008) where it was sited immediately outside the exit ramp of the Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park.
