The Line

Megan Piper’s new London sculpture walk is called The Line and follows the Greenwich Meridian north across the Thames into the Olympic Park at Stratford. There is strong influence from the sciences.

Quantum Cloud by A Gormley is composed of a central group of 325 extended tetrahedral sections which are connected to over 3,500 of the same elements extending into space.


Evoking the quantum age, and suggesting an unstable relation between energy and mass, it questions whether the body is produced by the field or the field by the body. Visually, it was inspired by conversations between Gormley and quantum physicist Basil Hiley.



A Slice of Reality by R Wilson is taken from an old sand dredger.



A Bullet from a Shooting Star by A Chinneck is 30m high and made from galvanised iron.
