Six artist/collectives were offered the dismantled cutting head, nicknamed Big Bertha, used to tunnel beneath London, to create a feature within in the forecourt of Stratford International Station. My proposal involved reassembling and reconditioning the cutting head, then installing it above a void created in the site cutting through one of the five Olympic rings set into the hard landscaping.
Designed in collaboration with Architects Ferguson McIlveen this new enclosure for the relocated church bells, was an exciting first experimentation with sheet Corian. The pianola like upper section enclosed the bells on a spiralling central support. Lit with colour changing LEDs there was a sense of implied movement around the drum. Unfortunately the high cost of providing the required pile foundations on an already strained budget prevented the scheme from progressing
