Quantum Cloud by Antony Gormley is a 30 metre high elliptical cloud sculpture sitting in the Thames that is made from 3500 lengths of square tube which somehow generates a 20 metre high human figure at its centre. The figure is elusive and not fully...More
I sympathise with people who don’t ‘get jazz’, it is a musical genre that you either get or don’t get. The Quantum Cloud is like bebop, it is hard core sculpture, I don’t get it. I ‘like’ Antony Gormley, the figures at Woolwich are impressive...More
This is a contemporary sculpture located next to the Millennium Dome and stands in the River Thames on four cast iron caissons. It was designed by Anthony Gormley with steel sections using a random walk algorithm based on his body that forms an outline at...More
The sculpture itself is pretty darned impressive - but the hundreds upon hundreds of plastic bottles and various other bits of plastic and rubber and human wrappings in the reeds at the waters edge is not. Someone needs to 'drag the hoover round' desperately. It's...More
Every time go to London, I usually end up on one of those commuter ships that go down the Thames at a really fast rate, and usually end up going past the Millennium dome and now this sculpture, I do like a good sculpture, and...More

Mmmmmm.... well ! This sculpture didn't really flick my switch. Located on a pontoon in the Thames so you can't get up close and personal which is what art is all about. Currently (December 16) surrounded by building works so you can't even get a...More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
