Public works of art

Having listened to the tail end of Front Row on a few trips home from work, it seems that there's beeb a new culture emerging, in recent years, of public art - works of sculpture and visual poetry that isn't restricted to galleries.

A fairly obvious one is the Broadcasting House project - a giant canvas on the 'prow' of the old building.

The SourceThen there's the new sculpture recently unveiled at the London Stock Exchange - it's called The Source and changes moment by moment, 'stimulated' by news feeds. I'd love to go and see it.

This evening, I heard about three new bridges to be built at the terminus of the Grand Union Canal in the Paddington Basin - Helix, Rolling Bridge and the Langlands and Bell bridge. Hopefully I'll have the chance to visit and, perhaps, photograph them at some point.new Paddington Bridges

The Freedom TowerRight now, though, I'm watching a programme on Channel 4 about the Freedom Tower and the associated power struggle between the designers. Another sight to add to the list...
