This free collection of creative events and installations takes over venues great and small in the Bankside area for a third year in 2014, this time with a theme of 'Art and Science'. The full schedule will be announced on the Merge Festival website, but highlights already confirmed include Alex Chinneck's 'A Pound of Flesh for 50p', a life-size house made of wax bricks which will melt by the end of the festival, leaving only its roof on the site where it stood. Bompas and Parr are also involved, and will be creating a wearable installation which affects the part of the brain which is most susceptible to other-worldly experiences, Sensed Presence.
