At the moment, if you go to the upper floors at St Pancras Station, there’s a massive steel twisted blade spinning overhead.


Not a Damoclean Sword, but a work of art, called, Thought of Train of Thought, by Royal Academician Ron Arad

The official blurb says that it “rotates slowly to create an optical illusion of horizontal, train-like movement. In contrast to its imposing station surroundings – ‘rich in architectural details, busy with movement of people, trains, billboards and other stimuli,’ says Arad – the work will be ‘minimal, monolithic and calm.'”


I would say that it rotates more like a slowly moving turbine blade though.

It’s going to be slowly spinning above people’s heads until the end of January 2017.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
