Heather Phillipson’s vast physical and digital sculpture tops the Fourth Plinth with a giant swirl of whipped cream, a cherry, a fly and a drone that transmits a live feed of Trafalgar Square. Entitled THE END it suggests both exuberance and unease, responding to Trafalgar Square as a site of celebration and protest, that is shared with other forms of life. The live feed of Trafalgar Square picked up by the drone’s camera is visible on a dedicated website www.theend.today giving a sculpture’s eye perspective.
I met Gene Kelly, one of my Tap heroes, in Leicester Square.
Dancing in the Rain.
… and of course I danced with him – what a privilege.
We walked to the station via Soho with the ever present Chinese cooking smells, I love.
I was fortunate to get tickets for an Il Divo concert in the London O2 Arena yesterday.
Il Divo are 4 young men with amazing voices, they have been created 12 years ago and go from strength to strength. I have followed them for at least 9 years now. They do sing pop opera or as it is called popera.
It features plants from East and West, meeting in the middle. A calm garden on top of a new railway station which is being build in Canary Wharf. It was calm and quiet in the middle of a concrete world. We had a lovely walk and enjoyed the amazing plants and trees there. Have a look for yourself!
There was a piano in the middle of the building so I couldn’t resist to do a fun bit on it which my aunt taught me.
