Last chance to see the wonderful, seemingly impossible floating building in Covent Garden East Piazza by artist Alex Chinneck with is on display until October 24, 2014. The engineering behind the 12-metre-long sculpture has been made from a steel frame and a type of expanded polystyrene called filcor to reduce weight. The counterweight for the cantilever is hidden in the green market stall to the right if the structure. Digital paint techniques and were used to resemble the existing architecture in the area.
These photos was created by blending multiple frames in Photoshop so as to have a clear image of the sculpture as there was a constant flow of people obstructing the view.

Had a peek behind the scenes for the last Coldplay concert of their Ghost Stories Tour at the the Royal Albert Hall as my wife is artist Mila Fürstová who created the art for Ghost Stories based on Chris Martin’s lyrics. Moments before they went on stage the band signed some editions of Mila’s art which will be auctioned to raise money for the charity Kids Company. After the signing the band invited her in the pre-show huddle, where Chris thanked her for the artwork she’s produced.
For information on purchasing editioned prints of Mila’s Coldplay work see albumartists.co.uk
