In 2009 he was shortlised for the inaugural £45,000 Spitalfields Sculpture Prize proposing "a large scale, multi-faceted sculpture that merges six different aspects of Spitalfields – from its famous Christ Church to the profile of the Spitalfields Woman on display at the British Museum [...] a consistently changing 3-D piece into which visitors can read different images as they circle it."
