UPDATE: 2012 Olympics. Liverpool will see the amazing Column which JD Construction is building for artist Anthony McCall.
"Anthony McCall will create Column, a slender, sinuous, spinning column of cloud rising into the sky from the surface of the water in Merseyside, close to the city of Liverpool. Extending upwards as far as the eye can see, and visible on a clear day from up to 100 km away, the column will disappear and re-appear in slow structured sequences, punctuating the skyline whilst connecting it with the city and its docks".
PRESS COVERAGE for Column
The Culture Show (BBC TV) has kindly included the clip of column on their website
Artists taking the lead is one of the most ambitious and wide-ranging art events in the UK. Twelve extraordinary commissions will be created by artists across the nation, as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. 2,163 ideas were shortlisted to 59 projects by expert panels of artists and producers – those 59 have now become 12 winners. Together they will create a national celebration of culture up to and through out 2012.Click for Artists Taking the Lead - Anthony McCall.
