Down South Bank





As the CSM show was by South Bank I was only too pleased to be walking around one of my favourite parts of London. It's been way too long since I was down there and we're planning on going back there soon to see the Walking in my mind exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. Yoshitomo Nara's one of the artists - woohoo!!

  1. I've seen something like that on a tree in Singapore before. Maybe it's from the same designer or something. But the water fountain looks really neat! Does it move from top or bottom?

  2. My parents have been to London last weekend an my Mom told me about the polkadotted trees, they were there when they were just installed. I really like the idea, do you know what the artist is called?
    I did not make it to Southbank last time I was in London, I probably should put it on my list for my next visit.

  3. I think the artist is Yayoi Kusama. It was for the Singapore Biennale project.

  4. da earbuddz: the water comes from the bottom, it's shaped like a square with four sections in it. the water is timed so you can in theory go inside it without getting soaked... or you time it all wrong and you get drenched!

    ktinka: the artist is yayoi kusama, check her work out here: here.
    and yes, south bank is a must for your next visit!
